Summer Learning Journey

For this activity, I have to learn a little bit about the capital city of the country that I have chosen.
Here are the things I found out about Canada’s capital city:
The name of the capital city is Ottawa
In 2011 the population size of Ottawa was 883,391 people
In January the weather is usually very cold
The capital city is located around the south east of Canada

The most spoken language in Canada is French


  1. Hello Daniel, I like how you wrote the year of the amount of people because some people might get confused which year it was. Nice job.

  2. Hi Daniel, I really like how you have added every information needed. I also like how you have specifically answered the questions. Keep up the great work.

    1. Hey Daniel,
      I agree with Oh Hsen Comment that you've created a suitable answer for all 5 answers. Keep it up Dan!

  3. Hello Daniel, I like the facts about the capital city of the country you have choosen. The facts are really intrwsting. I think instead of learing little you have leant a lot. Keep on the great work!

  4. Hey Daniel,

    I agree with Oh Hsen & Pote but at least you have done the activity. Awesome Daniel.


  5. Hi Daniel (Ofa, Oh Hsen, Cecillia and AJ),

    Once again the team of bloggers from Panmure Bridge School is doing an amazing job of commenting on each other's work. I will make sure that I send messages to your teachers so that they know just how well you've done and how impressed I am with your work.

    Way to go, guys! You are setting an awesome example for others to follow.


    1. P.S. Daniel, I really enjoyed reading the facts that you posted about my home town. It's always fun to read facts about Ottawa and your facts were both accurate and interesting. It truly can get to -30 degrees Celsius in January in Ottawa. We can also have as much as 5 feet of snow on the ground at any one time. When the snow fall is too heavy we actually have to cancel school because the buses can't drive safely on the snow. We call those days, 'Snow Days!' They're a lot of fun because everyone stays home, puts on their snow suits and goes outside to play.

      I hope that you're able to find lots of time to get outside and play with your friends and family this holiday. I've just come in from playing basketball with my son, Aronui. He's learning how to dribble the ball and will soon be way too fast and skilled for me!

      Wishing you a very happy start to 2017,


  6. Kia ora Daniel,

    Happy New Year! I hope you have been enjoying your holidays so far. It's been great fun following all of the wonderful blogging you and your friends have been doing over the holidays so far.

    I really enjoyed reading your facts Daniel. Like Rachel, I found your facts fun and interesting! I never knew that their most common language was French? I think it is so impressive to be bilingual, I wish I could speak different languages too. Can you speak any others?

    If you were planning on visiting Canada at this time of year, I'd recommend a few woolly jumpers in your suitcase! Keep up the great work, and have a happy, safe 2017 :-)
