Holiday reading challenge day 2 activity 1

For this task I had to find these 5 things about my country that I chose.

  1. The name of the capital city is London
  2. The population of the capital city is approximately 8.674 million
  3. In January, the weather in the capital city is usually rainy
  4. The capital city is located in the southern part of the country.
  5. The language most commonly spoken in the capital city is English,


  1. Hello Alex, wow! I didn't know that there is 8.647 million people living in London. You have done a great job blogging during this holidays. Keep on working hard.

  2. Hi Alex, London is one of my favorite city in the world! I was surprised that there are so many people living in the capital city London match higher than I thought!Great job, Alex!!!

  3. Hi Alex!! It's great to see that you made time on the 24th of December (Christmas Eve) to blog with us! That is amazing.

    I love that you have chosen to go to England. I had the opportunity to live in England for a few years and I loved it! I lived in a really interesting (and quite old) city called 'Norwich.' It was about 2 hours east of London by train and my friends and I used to head into London every few weeks to see a show or visit a museum. London truly is a spectacular place but, in January, it is (as you wrote in your blog) usually rainy. It is also usually quite cold! I think that the best time to visit London would be in the late spring (May/June) or early fall (September).

    I hope that you are able to continue your blogging with us again soon! In the meantime, have a wonderful time with your family and friends over Christmas and New Years.

    Wishing you a safe and happy start to 2017,


  4. Kia ora Alex,

    Well done on starting Day 2 of your Learning Journey! Especially on Christmas Eve, that's great commitment!

    I'm glad to see how much you are learning about England already, and I hope you keep blogging over the summer holidays :-) England would be a fascinating place to visit, with a lot of history - especially in London! Their weather might not be too flash at the moment though, so I reckon I'd prefer a New Zealand Christmas in the sunshine with lots of beaches to go swimming at!

    London sounds like a very busy place. Could you imagine living in a city with twice the population of New Zealand living there? Although you'd get to meet so many new and exciting people i reckon! What's the first thing you'd like to do if you visited London?

    Keep up the great work Alex, I hope to read more from you soon.


  5. Hey Alex
    Great job on this activity. Those five facts about England's capitol are very interesting. Keep up the good work!

  6. Hi Alex, these 5 facts are really intresting and fascinating. I especially like fact number 5. Keep up the great work and hope to see more Summer Learning Journey Activites.
