Cross Country

Nervously waiting on the cold hard concrete, I challenged myself to beat my mate at today's Cross Country. Numb feet made the race very challenging. I tired to beat Studamyer, but I was puffed out. I felt proud and relieved because I didn't come last.

The Dumbest Thing I Have Ever Done

I knew at the time it was stupid, but the dumbest thing I have ever done is steal lollies from the cupboard because I was hungry. Boy did I get into trouble because those lollies belonged to my mum. When I got snapped I knew that I would have to say sorry to her and mean it as well.

Ferdinand Magellan

Ferdinand Magellan was born in 1480 in Portugal. The government of Portugal disagreed with Magellan so he asked the King of Spain if he could have a boat and some money like Columbus had, because he was going to circumavigate the world to get to India. Magellan's boat was called Victoria because it meant Victory. He couldn't go past Africa because the route was owned by Portugal. He sailed west through the Altantic ocean and in to the strait of Magellan. Magellan discovered the Pacific ocean. As he was circumnavigating the world he got to the Phillipines and was killed in a battle. Luckily his boat and his crew made it back to Spain and were the first to sail right the way around the world.

This means they were giving money to the players that they were not allowed to and that is illegal.
