Week 2 Day 8 Activities by Ashleigh

Day 8 – Sunshine and Swimming Togs
Good morning! It is Day #8 of your journey and, according to the local weather station, today is going to be cloudy and wet. Back home in New Zealand it is sunny and 28 degrees Celsius today.  It is a perfect summer day! Think about what you like to do in the summer time and complete one or more of these activities.

Activity 1
What are your favourite things to do in the summer time? For this activity you have two different options: (1) You can take a picture of yourself doing one of your favourite summer time activities and upload it to your blog along with a description of what you’re doing or (2) you can write a paragraph that tells us about what you love doing in the summer on your blog. It is completely up to you!
I like to go to ice skating with my friends during the summer and maybe have some ice cream, because the place where ice is is cold and it must be under the shade or indoor activity, so we don't have to play around in the hot hot summer, and after ice skating it will be great if we can have some ice cream, so that we don't get hot after we went out.

Activity 2
Ask someone in your family or one of your friends what their favourite five things are to do in the summer time. On your blog, write the title ‘Summer Activities’ and, below the title, tell us about the five things that they love to do.

Bonus Activity
Instead of taking a picture or writing to us, for this activity you are invited to make a short video blog (3-4 minutes). On the video blog please tell us about your favourite summer time activities. Upload the video to your blog. Make sure that you write a short description below the video so that people know what the video is about.

Bonus Activity = 15 points


  1. Hi Ashleigh,
    That was a great video you have done there. I think that ice skating is a great way to relax in the summer and also keep cool. But for me none of the videos I tried worked, But thats ok.

    1. Hi Shanya!

      Did you know you are allowed to do some editing on wevideo, and by the way what do you mean by non of the video worked for you?

  2. Hi Ashleigh!

    This was such a good blog entry! You addressed all the questions well, and I really enjoyed watching your video and reading about what you would do on a hot summers day!

    A lot of Kiwis (including me) like hitting the beach for a swim and slop on some sunblock, slap on a hat, and jump into the water!

    Keep up the great work!
