Great Explorers Key Stage I Assembly. Sample Text:

Columbus:      What? You mean, you got (pauses as he points up) right up there? To the moon?

Armstrong:     Correct. And I was the first to walk on its surface!

Child 16:         ‘One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’. Weren’t those your words?

Armstrong:     Indeed they were!

Columbus:      But, what did you find up there?

Aldrin:             Ooh, rocks and dust!

Columbus:      Rocks and dust? Was that all? Huh! I can imagine what would have happened to me if I had just brought rocks and dust back to the king and queen of Spain!

Collins:            So what did you take back with you?

Columbus:      Ooh! Gold, spices – we’re talking real treasures, from China and India.

Collins:            Are you sure?

Columbus:      Well, of course I’m sure. (Pulling out gold treasure from his pocket) Here! See?

Narrator:         No. I don’t think he (pointing to Collins) meant what you brought back. I think he was talking about where you thought you’d been!

Columbus:      (Taking out his compass) Now! Look here! This here compass never let me down! Just what are you saying?

Child 17:         That you didn’t make it to the Indies!

Columbus:      (Exploding) What? But (spluttering) that’s not possible!

Child 18:         You landed in the Bahamas!

Columbus:      The Bahamas?

Child 19:         That’s right! The Indies were in the opposite direction!

Narrator:         But he was trying to find another route to India and China – across the sea, instead of over land.

Child 20:         But the land he came to was America!

Columbus:      Ah! Well, at least I was the first there!

Child 21:         Well, actually no, you weren’t!

Child 22:         The Vikings had got there 500 years before you!

(Columbus clutches his head and sinks to the floor, groaning)

(Narrator goes over and helps him to his feet)

Narrator:         Oh dear! We didn’t mean to upset you!
