Summer Learning Journey: Day 3 Activity 1

Today I did the first activity for day 3 of the Summer Learning Journey. For this activity, we had to answer one question, and explain why. Our question was, would you want to live in a big family with about 8 - 9 siblings in the 1800's, and why or why not. My answer to that is, no, I wouldn't want to be a part of a family so big. The reason being that I would have to share with ALL of them. So getting a present for myself would now be a present for ALL of us.


  1. Hi Jack,

    Ruby here from the Summer Learning Journey team.
    What an interesting idea! I hadn't thought about having to share presents before. I had thought about sharing room which I had to do with my sister for 13 years when I was young. I have a medium sized family of 6 which is quite enough for us!

    What are some of the good things about having a large family do you think? I know that one good thing is that you always have someone to talk to.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog over summer.

  2. Hi Jack
    Well done on completing this summer learning journey activity. I also wouldn't want to live in a large family because my siblings would probably be very noisy or very annoying (Or both!). Keep up the awesome work Jack.
