Chant for G.I.S

Chant for G.I.S

Be tough not rough.
Try your best
And beat the rest.
Make us proud.
Open your eyes
And G.I.S will win a prize.
Then come to school
And you won’t be a fool.

Survey and report

Walt: Write a report on my survey.

Last month I decided to find out what is the favourite game of the children's at Glen Innes? I went around personally and asked them what is their favourite game on the computer? My target was to survey kids from Glen Innes. 25 children were surveyed.

The results showed that most children's favourite game on the computer was Friv and Other which was equal. Cool Maths Games and Go Happy Monkey was the same that was also equal and the least popular game was Tank Trouble. Friv and Other was the most popular games at Glen Innes.

Ten people voted for Friv because their are many games for them to choose. There were also ten kids who chose Other games because they did not like the games that I chose.

Weird and Wacky Food Festivals

Walt: write a summary. Weird and Wacky Food Festivals. Last week room 11 had to find out about weird and wacky food festivals but I will tell you the two festivals I had chosen. The Tomato festival is held in Spain. It takes place in Bunol which is near to Valencia in Spain. It is held on the last Wednesday of August once a year. The festival starts at 11 am in the morning. The first event is when they climb the pole to get the ham. It has been a strong tradition in Bunol since 1945. No one knows why the La Tomatina started. The people has to throw tomatoes at each other. The Radish festival is held in Mexico. It takes place in the centre of Oaxaca. The Mexicans did the radish festival to encourage people to farm, that means they can grow their own vegetables. The Radish Festival starts on the 23d of December once a year. The name of the festival is known as Noche de Rabanos in Spanish. Everyone gathers around in the Plaza Zocalo and they make sculptures from red radishes that can weigh up to 3 kilograms. I think we should have a weird and wacky food festival for New Zealand. New Zealand should have a potato festival.
