Day 1 SLJ WK 2

Day 1: The Early Years (Late 1800s – 1919)

Activity 1: St Joseph’s Cathedral
At the turn of the century, there was a great deal of construction happening in New Zealand. Many of the new British settlers wanted to build homes and community meeting places, such as churches. One of the largest buildings to be constructed during this period was St Joseph’s Cathedral in Dunedin.

St Joseph’s Cathedral is just one of hundreds of beautiful cathedrals around the world.

Use your search engine to find a picture of another famous cathedral. Post a picture of the cathedral on your blog. Underneath the picture tell us: the name of the cathedral, where the cathedral is located, when it was built, and how long it took to build:
this is the notre Dame cathedral and was built in 1163 I don't know when it was done but it was open in 1345. it is 69 metres (226 ft) tall It is in paris, france. It is frances most famous landmarks and many people visit it each year.
Task description: This task is all about cathedrals and I picked Notre dame de paris. just above you can see all the information I put on their about the cathedral. I said how tall it is when people started building it and when those people finished and opened the cathedral. 


  1. Hi again Naomi, thanks for selecting your favourite cathedral, posting a photo of it and sharing a description about specific measurements. It has been really interesting to read and I have learnt lots.

    It's a cool photo you have chosen too! I like the blue sky behind the church. The church looks like it has lots of interesting patterns. I would love to have a look inside. Apparently this church took around 200 years to build. That is such a long time! I bet the people were getting frustrated waiting.


  2. Hi Naomi!

    My name is Ellee, I am another part of the Summer Learning Journey Crew that is commenting on your blogs this summer.

    Hope you have had a lovely Christmas and New years break?

    I really like that you have so much specific information on the cathedral including dates and measurements, awesome job!
    This looks like such a beautiful cathedral, I think that it must be really impressive in real life - would you like to visit one day?

    Hope to see you back blogging soon Naomi!
