I was reading a magazine and there was an article that said Lea Michelle, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley are going to star on the Simpson's. The episode is called Elementary School Musical. This is the first episode of the next season. Lisa Simpson joins them at a performing arts camp for a good old sing-a-long. Here is a link to go and watch a premier of it.

The Canterbury Earthquake

On Saturday at 4:00am an earthquake hit Christchurch. Unexpectedly the earthquake measured 7.1 on the Richter scale and was the same measurement of the earthquake in Haiti. Luckily only a few people got hurt, sadly 1 died from heart attack.

The extensive damage made houses collapse and buildings got split in two. At least 100,000 homes were damaged and about 450 need to be demolished. The roads buckled and buildings crumbled.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is my favourite celebrity. Her first appearance on TV was on Barney and Friends. Her best friend is Demi Lavato who also stared in Barney and Friends. They have done a movie together called Princess Protection Program. They both have their own program on YouTube and she is also on a show called Wizards of Waverly Place. I hope you like my paragraph.

Cross Country

Heart pumping, legs shaking, 10 year old girls were waiting at the starting line for cross country. "Are you nervous?” I asked Ashleigh. ‘’No," she replied. “I am, I hate cross country!” I moaned.

Mr Burt hit the clappers together and we were off! Pushing and shoving the girls ran down the field. Jogging, I started to cough, so I walked. Going out of the gate there was a big puddle of water. It felt cold in between my toes. Miss Glaze said, "Keep on going, you have a long way to go. "

Half way through the field and I am jogging. Ms Squires is filming me and Jay'Lee, so I start to go faster. I come past Mrs Barks and she starts to sing "Don’t stop Believing". I am coming up to the finish line, sprinting. “ Finally it is over!” I go and wash my feet. I never want to do that again.

Black Beard.

Black Beard began his pirating career in 1716, at the age of about 36. He was a ruthless man and terrorised the Caribbean seas striking terror in the hearts of the American colonies.

His menacing appearance had many people scared of him. His towering figure even made other pirates scared. He wore a crimson coat and his thick shaggy beard was braided to make him look even tougher. Armed with lots of pistols and knives, he looked like a crazy man. The fuses on his head made it look like smoke was coming out of his head. He really was frightening.
