Hoilday blogging Day 1

For Summer Blogging on day 1, my task was to pick one of 6 countries: Chile, UK, Canada, Germany,  New Zealand and Malaysia to visit. I had to read a page full of quick facts for each country. When I had chosen my country, I then had to explain why I chose that specific country to travel to. I also needed to remember the country because I would be re-visiting it each day. 

The country that I have chosen is 'Malaysia'. I have chosen this country because I felt it stood out from the other five countries as it had such diffrent facts compared to the other countries facts. I also thought the design on the Malaysian flag was amazing.

Dear Paige,

Welcome to the Summer Learning Journey!! I am so happy to see that you have joined us. It's wonderful to have your involvement.

I am also really happy to see that you have chosen to 'visit' Malaysia. It is a very interesting country and quite a unique culture. Two of my good friends, Stephanie and Marc, actually lived in Malaysia for a number of years and worked as teachers. I had the opportunity to visit them a few years ago and I loved it! They were staying in a city close to the capital (Kuala Lumpur) and they took us into the city centre to go sight seeing. It was unlike anywhere that I had ever been...

I hope that you will continue to explore Malaysia with us over the coming week. There is plenty to learn about the people, the language, the food, the politics, the sports, the music, etc. Over the next few days you will prepare for your trip and then on Day 5 you arrive in the country!

I'll look forward to reading your blogs as you continue your travels. Please blog as much as you want and complete as many activities as possible. Each activity is worth points and the students with the most points at the end of the summer will earn prizes!

Happy travels :)

Kia ora Paige ☺

The Summer Learning Journey programme has now come to an end. Thank you so much for being involved this summer!

Over the next few months I plan to review the programme. As part of the review process I am hoping to gather feedback from participants, just like you! To tell me what you think please log onto the Summer Learning Journey website and click on the ‘Feedback’ tab. It will take you to a short online form. Can you please fill it out? It should only take about 5 minutes. I’d love to hear what you think!

I will also be coming into your school in a few weeks to hand out participation certificates. I am really looking forward to seeing you then!

Thanks again for joining our Summer Learning Journey this year. I really hope that you join our holiday blogging programme again next summer.
