Sitting, relaxed, waiting for a turn to speak. We were having another Paideia Seminar, finally someone spoke and it actually made sense so I added on saying “ if Africa became like America the world would be a pretty rubbish place to live on, because America has already created heaps of pollution and if Africa is like America the world will be polluted!”
I achieved my goal of speaking more because I spoke like 7 times. Right after I said the America thing my mind popped up with another idea based on the exact same thing, I said again “ if every country was like America if you were on a plane and wanted to go to America you wouldn’t know where to go because every country will be like America.”
Every time you got three ticks you could take three lollies home lucky for me as I told you I got 7 ticks, everyone was mostly excited about the lollies because they are very yummy and everybody knows that!
It was so fun, I loved it, everybody came because the lollies well so did I but also I enjoyed talking more than eating lollies! My goal for next Term is linking on to what another person says!
(using information from the text)
How would you feel if you were in Tane’s situation?
Scared, Petrified, Frightened and shocked
Because what the mutts will do to you
Why would you not mess with the Mutts?
Because they will try to kill you
How they tie him to the car then his rad monitor is going red
Do you think the setting was once a nice environment?
No, because it was a junkyard full of old broken cars and trucks and tires and rubbish
No, because in the pictures it looks like a junkyard or a dirty car graveyard
Would it be a pleasant temperature?
No, because it was so hot that Tane needed to get some shade or he would of died
No, because it was so hot that it felt like Mars
Was the environment deserted?
No, because it looked like a car graveyard and a place where you wouldn’t want to go to
Was Tane thirsty?
Yes, Because when he finds the frogs it says that his mouth is dry

Muddy, wet, and excited as I tramp over the gooey muddy tracks and head towards the park. As I swing on the ladder I couldn’t stop thinking about 'The Messy Games' and how much fun I would have while I would be playing. A few minutes later the siren calls “everyone to the field it’s time for the… Messy Games!”
We were playing a game that I like to call 'Dodge ’n’ Slide' because how you play is...
- Hit the ball with the Bat from home base (which looked like
- Run and slide on your belly and jump into the object to be safe
- You cannot hit them with the ball when they are inside the objects
- You are not allowed to run around the slide
- One person at a time
- If you 2 people jump inside the same object then the person who jumped inside is out
- Throw the ball at the person who is running and sliding if you hit them then they are out
- If you catch the ball on the full then they are out
When it was my turn I hit the ball pretty far and slid on the slide got back up and hopped inside the object. I was Safe! When the next person hit I quickly dashed then slid then again leaped inside the object, as the other person gets tagged, As I went this time it the same thing happened except when I just got off the slide I was tagged!
My next turn, the exact same thing happend to me and I was tagged in the same place. Over and Over again. It kinda sucked every time getting out in the same place! Once the Messy Games had finished, well it wasn’t all over for me and a few others…
While I was getting cleaned with the hose I was watching My brothers and the youth boys sliding down this huge mud patch, first I was going to go but I realised I was already clean so I couldn’t be bothered, I saw Willie walking up the mountain but he was already clean so I said to him “Willie don’t go up your already clean” He smiled back at me and turned away, after a while I actually ended up going up that mountain and sliding on my nono/Bottom, the hill was very steep so you had to be careful but the faster we went the more sliding happened!
