    I like Spain because it’s nice and calm it’s also really warm but some parts there are bullfighting which I don’t like because it’s cruel to the Bulls.Did you know around about 30,000 bulls are being killed a year during bullfighting.Also if your a matidor in bullfighting you and the bull could be really injured or even killed!I think if bullfighting carries on the bull mums will die and won’t be making more baby’s so they’ll be no bulls left.My favourite like state in Spain is Marbella so for because the water park was awsome and you have to pay like 24 euros for the buffe but you get a massive choice of food it is so worth it my favourite was the pancakes yum yum.

    Spanish Vocabulary

  • Dante says:

    Dear Spanish King
    Please could you mind banning bullfighting because I mean I love animals and it’s really sad to see them die.Although some people might think it’s good entertainment and bulls are vicious but it doesn’t mean you can hurt them.I would hate to watch a bull fight and see the poor bulls pass out then be killed who likes seeing a animal being killed WHO!How would you Matadors feel if Bulls were humans and Matadors were bulls how would you feel being killed or really injured.No offence if you like bullfighting and the others but I really hate it.If I saw a bullfight I would literally scream at the matador because it’s just torture.I would also leash the Bull and try make it follow me so I can take it to the hills where safety is like Toro Toro!I mean by the time you think of a name for the 30,001 that hasn’t been chosen it would be dead.If I had magic powers I would revive all the Bulls and write a Poster that says Bulls Rule Bring it on grrr.

  • Lexi says:

    Should bullfighting be band?

    I feel that bull fighting should be band because what has the bull ever done to us and cruel and brutal. On the other hand us in Engaland kill lots of typos of animals. If I had to choose I would band it. If the animals where always cruel to us yes but only sometimes

    Do you think bullfighting should be band ?

    Bullfighting is very cruel because the Matadors are just killing the bull and also teasing the bull.Bullfighting is a popular sport in Spain but now it is very old fashioned and not that many people come to see it any more.I personally don’t like bullfighting because it is not nice.How would we like it if we were bulls and got our ears and tails cut of by a matador and then got killed.

  • Oliver B says:

    Catolonia is a country that is a country that is inside Barcelona that is in Spain. Barcelona is a very rich country because there are lots of tourism attractions in Barcelona and that’s how they get so much money from.Catolonia made a vote that the Spanish govement doesn’t what to happen. The Spanish govement doesn’t want this to happen because they will get poor

  • Oliver F says:

    My favourite food is probably tapas because it’s really really nice.My favourite place to visit is actually Costa Adeje which is near Sian park which is a waterpark its quit expensive to get in.Water is really cheap because you have to buy the bottles of water instead of just running the tap like we can do.Like when I went they were 25c for a 1l.The most expensive bottle of water was 60c for 3l.

  • Finn says:

    Menorca is a island around Spain. I am commenting about it because my nan has a house there that i visit every year.
    The capital is Mahon which is a massive town with shops and cafe’s every where. My favarite shop there is the toy store (obviously) and my brothers favarite store is probably the watch store. The beach in Menorca is a 10-15 muinute walk and has a forest next to it and a mountain of rocks which around 3 or 4 million years ago was a volcano.
    Are house has a pool four bedrooms and two toilets. There’s a really good restront that sells non-alcoholic cocktails, my favarite cocktail is the peina callada wich is a pineapple one. For breckfast I usually eat granola with fruit and honey with a banana milkshake I would recommend Menorca for you/year 4.
