Summer Learning Journey Week 3 day 1 #1

It was common for women in the 1950s to stay home with their children and raise their family. They were called ‘housewives.’ Many housewives followed a simple rule when they prepared the evening meal: the ‘meat and three veg’ rule. This meant that they prepared dinners that included three different vegetables and a type of meat (eg. beef, lamb, or chicken).

On your blog tell us if you think that the ‘meat and three veg’ rule is a good one. Do you like the rule? Would you enjoy eating a typical 1950s dinner? Why or why not?

Yes, Yes and yes. I like all  land meat and all vegetables so I would like that. also its dinner so its yum and food.

Summer Learning Journey week 2 day 5 # 2

In the years following World War II, things slowly returned to normal in New Zealand. Soldiers returned home and settled back into regular life; and national sporting teams, like the New Zealand cricket team, got back together and started playing matches again. In the late 1940s, men and women would go to watch these events, men wearing hats and suits and women wearing dresses, hats, and gloves.

Compare the pictures of common clothing from the late 1940s to what you wear now (i.e. in 2017). Are they similar or are they quite different? On your blog tell us which of the two styles you prefer and why. The pictures above were taken over 65 years ago! What do you think people will be wearing 65 years from now?

I like there clothing more because it looks better in my opinion.

in 65 years I think that people will be wearing kinda the same thing but with less fabric because it's probably going to be hotter than it is now.

VE day

Activity 1: VE Day!
After six long years of fighting, World War II finally came to an end in 1945. The entire country was ecstatic and parties were thrown all over New Zealand to celebrate VE Day (Victory in Europe). Imagine that you were living in New Zealand in 1945 and you had to plan a VE day party at your house. Who would you invite? What would you do to celebrate?

On your blog, tell us all about your (imaginary) VE party.

I would invite all the people I know and have a rely big party and they can do whatever. well eat hot dogs, pies, sandwiches and other food.

Another World War

The First Allied Airborne Army was to seize bridges and the British XXX Corps. were to re-enforce them via land. Operation Market Garden freed almost all of Holland but did not reach all of  there goals because the British Airborne units at Arnhem did not get the reinforcements because they were delayed by German troops.  The British paras were supposed to hold the bridge for 12 hours but because of the delay they ended up holding it for 5 days but this was not enough.

In the 1920s a new artistic movement emerged in New Zealand (and around the world). It was called ‘Art Deco.’ The picture to the right is a classic example of an ‘Art Deco’ piece. Take a close look at the painting. Do you like it?

On your blog, give the painting a rating out of 5 stars (1 star = terrible painting, 2 stars = pretty bad painting, 3 stars = okay painting, 4 stars = good painting and 5 stars = amazing painting). After you’ve rated the painting out of 5, tell us why you gave it that rating.

3 stars. it is a good painting but it's not my kind of painting. it probably has a meaning but I don't now what it is or it's not getting to me.

At the turn of the century, New Zealand elected its first ever government. Richard John Seddon served as the leader of the Liberal Party from 1893-1906. Prior to 1893, only men were legally allowed to vote. This all changed in the late 1800s when a woman named Kate Sheppard lead a suffragist movement in New Zealand calling for a change in law. Her hard work finally paid off when the Electoral Act was passed into law on 19 September 1893, giving women the right to vote. New Zealand was the first country to give all women the right to vote. There were still countries in the world (e.g. Saudi Arabia) who, until recently, did not allow women to vote.

On your blog tell us what you think about the fact that women were not allowed to vote in Saudi Arabia until 2015. Is it fair? Why or why not?

No. I think that its not fear for women not to vote till 2015 because thay have to folow the law and thay should have a say.
