I hate school photo day. It sucks. Everything always has to go wrong. Last year I blinked when the school picture guy took the photo and the year before that I fell off the seat. It’s like I’m cursed. Anyway, it just so happens that today is school picture day. I hate that. I really hate that. I REALLY REALLY REALLY hate that. EVERY SINGLE TIME something goes wrong. But I’m not going to let anything happen this time. I am going to completely focus on it. So when the guy told me to sit on the seat, I did it as carefully as I could. The man said “Say cheese!” and took the photo. But then the flash made me sneeze! NNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Another school photo ruined! NNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
A frightful thing has just happened at the Gillion Fair, which resulted in the death of two young girls. At the time of the incident, the famous Gillion Merry-go-round was working just fine. Unfortunately, the person who ran it forgot to tighten the screws today, making the horses snap off their ropes, taking the lives of two small children with them. Luckily, only 2/7 of the kids riding it died, though it is still very sad.

This video was about how old the Harry Potter books are. The Harry Potter series is 20 years old. Quidditch is now an actual sport. The Philosopher’s stone was rejected by publishers many times and initially only 500 copies were made. It has been translated into 73 different languages. When was the first Harry Potter book drafted? When was the final Harry Potter book made? Harry Potter wasn’t actually made that long ago.

This video was about people with food allergies. Aussie kids have the highest rate of food allergies in the world. A peanut allergy is one of the most serious food allergies. Supermarkets and schools have changed to help food allergies. What are the main food allergies? How do Epi Pens work? Food allergies can be very serious.
I was at the zoo eating an orange-flavoured lolly when the tragedy happened. That poor, poor crocodile. It just collapsed! Oh? What’s that? OK, I’ll tell you how this happened. As I said before, I was at the zoo eating an orange-flavoured lolly and looking at the crocodile enclosure. There was an old crocodile who looked about 90. Suddenly he collapsed within his exhibit! It was so sad. I asked the zookeeper if he was going to live……… but he said no. And that brings me to here, crying alone in my room.

This video was about how long the average lifespan is. People now are generally living longer than any other time in history. The longest most humans will live for is around 115 years. The oldest person to have ever lived was aged 122. Will scientists ever discover/make a pill that lets you live forever? Where did the term ‘kick the bucket’ come from? We will live longer in the future.
The pile of snails sat in front me. How could anyone expect me to eat that!? I just couldn’t eat something so disgusting! With their crunchy shells and slimy inside… I couldn’t even look at them. Me and my mum were visiting France, and in case you didn’t know, FRENCH PEOPLE EAT SNAILS! I mean, what the hell? Anyway, I knew I had to eat them or I wouldn’t get desert. And we were having custard and chocolate pudding for desert; my FAVOURITE. Well, if I don’t eat them then I won’t get any desert, so I decided to give it a try. I opened my mouth and lowered one in…

In this paragraph I will explain to you about the magic of books. Books are fantastic. They are wondrous things. They bring stories to life! And today I will tell you about one particular book, that literally brings a story to life. This book has magical powers. If the reader opens it and reads the first sentence aloud, it will engulf the reader in a huge storm, then teleport it inside the book. The reader will be teleported to a pirate ship, and be held prisoner forever. The only way to get out of the book is to get the spyglass from the captain. How do I know all this? This stuff once happened to me.
I can’t believe it. I’m actually fighting Medusa. In case you don’t know, Medusa is a lady who has snakes for hair and she turns people to stone if they look into her eyes. She is a Greek myth. Or so I thought. But I guess she can’t be a myth if I’m fighting her right now. Anyway, I’m battling her with my sword when suddenly she grabs hold of me and forces me to look into her eyes. I grab my mirror just as she turns me to stone. We both turn to stone and even to this day now, you can still see us. They built a wall around us though, so you can only see a little bit of us. Anyway, that’s how I turned to stone.
