Summer Learning Journey W1:D1

Activity 1:

I would chose to go to England as I have never been there before. Going to England would be a dream come true. Also I would love to see their National Icons:
  1. The Barbary Lion
  2. The Rose
  3. The Oak Tree
  4. The Queen
  5. Cup Of Tea

Activity 2:

1. England is 74 times smaller than the USA, 59 times smaller than Australia and 3 times smaller than Japan.

2. The highest temperature ever recorded in England was 38.5°C (101.3°F ) in Brogdale, Kent, on 10 August 2003.

3. English people consume more tea per capita than anybody else in the world (2.5 times more than the Japanese and 22 times more than the Americans or the French).

Bonus Activity:

Hello Uncle,

I’m going on an adventure to England for approximately 3 weeks. I will go explore different tourist attractions including their 5 national icons (Barbary Lion, Rose, Oak Tree, Queen and Cup Of Tea). Would you be keen to join me? I would love for you too come. If you accept this invitation then you will be lucky to fly on Air New Zealand (Deluxe) with me.

  1. Kia ora Stevenson!

    I'm Mark, one of the teachers working with Rachel on the Summer Learning Journey. I'm not sure if I've introduced myself yet, but it is awesome to see you joining in on the programme! Rachel tells me you are an excellent blogger and I can't wait to see more from you!

    I really liked how well you formatted your answer here. It is easy to read and understand, and you have answered all the questions more than adequately.

    Keep up the great work!


    1. Hey Mark,

      Nice to meet you and thank you for your comment.


  2. Hi Stevenson,

    I've just had the chance to read through your blog and to read Mark's reply and I completely agree. You do a lovely job of formatting your answers and making it all very clear and easy to follow. Thanks for that!

    Both Mark and I are so pleased that you're participating again this year. I'd been telling Mark about you and it was awesome to see your name pop up on the Manaiakalani Twitter feed today.

    Keep up the great work over the next few weeks. By blogging with us you will make sure that your reading and writing skills are top notch for your move into college next month. Will you be going to a college in the area?

    Talk to you soon!

    Rachel :)

    1. Hey Rachel,

      Thanks for you comment and yeah decided to finish off the holidays on a good note by completing the Summer Learning Journey. Day 3 and 4 should be up soon some problems occured due to the logos and wordles which wouldn't load up.

      I will be attending St. Kentigern College this year so I will be in the Pakuranga suburb for college.

      Yes we sure will

      Stevenson XD

    2. Hi Stevenson,

      You have certainly made my day by joining in the journey once again. I am SO thrilled to have you back:)

      I see that you've posted new blogs so I will check those now and be sure to leave comments!

      It's great to read that you'll be in the area next year. Best of luck at St Kenitgern College. I have heard great things about the school. You will have a wonderful time :)

      See you online!

      Rachel :)
