what to do
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.


  1. Kia Ora Payton,
    I’m Dani, one of the bloggers here at the Summer Learning Journey. It’s great to see that you have completed a few more activities! Wow you have picked a beautiful cathedral to write more about. I didn’t even realise that it was a cathedral. That’s crazy that it took so long to build! Have you seen some photos of all the beautiful stained glass windows? I was just reading about them. There have been several different stained glass windows because they have been destroyed over the year but things such as stray bullets in World War 2 !
    I look forward to reading more of your blogs soon!

    I really enjoyed reading your post about Notre Dame. That is unbelievable that it took almost 200 years to build it! I would love to go to France one day and visit Notre Dame. Would you like to visit France one day?

    I look forward to reading more of your blog posts Payton, keep up the awesome blog posts!
