Week 2: The early years

Activity 1: St Joseph's Cathedral

Milan Cathedral, Italy, it was built in 1386 and it took six centuries to build

Activity 2: The right to vote
It isn't fair because if men only vote then women think they aren't important and think that their voices are useless and they shouldn't be heard.

Bonus activity: In Flanders's Fields
It made me feel kind of sad because of the sacrifices they made to save our country but it also made me happy because they made us proud and defended our country as best as they could.

  1. Hi Taleisha,

    Ruby here from the Summer Learning Journey team! It's great to see you've kept going with these activities over the Christmas break! Well done.

    Activity 1: Wow! What an incredible cathedral! A building like that would have taken a very long time to build but I can't believe it took them 600 years! My Dad went to Italy last year and got to see this. He said it was amazing!

    Activity 2: I don't think it's fair either. It's important to hear everyone's voice! How does it make you feel to know that New Zealand was the first country to let women vote? It makes me feel proud to be a New Zealander.

    Bonus activity: I felt exactly the same way. You've described how you feel very well. A lot of people lost family and friends in the war. How do you think those people felt when they read this poem?

    I look forward to reading more of your blog over summer.
