I can’t breath! I started to panic and bang on the door! But no one was there. I started to suffocate when a bright light shone into my eyes.I took a massive breath with relief.
It was my boss, I thanked him and kissed the floor. I was so relieved until my boss said . . . ” You’re fired!”
It was dark. I was scared. I was banging so hard that you could hear my banging from downstairs. How stupid am I to do this?
I was breathing so hard. Why did I do this? Not even a little kid would do this. I am obviously going to get caught now.
I was squished into this small box panicking. I was sweating like a pig. My heartbeat was fast.
I panic in fear, it’s getting warmer. I take a deep breath in and out to calm myself but it was hopeless. The black hole, did it fall or close? Either way I’m stuck.
I’m stuck. The safe keeps me inside. I shouldn’t have done this, now I have to wait until the boss gets his money. Now I bet I’m going to get fired and go to jail. My life is ruined.
I’m starting to get squashed. My neck hurts. I’m starting to think that I’m going to be like this forever. I knock on the metal, shouting “Help! Help!”
I hear someone doing the code, the safe opens.
“Put your hands high. Where I can see them! You’re going to jail!”
My phone, where is it? How could I be so dumb? I left it on my desk. Will I have to hunger until somebody finds me? I bang on the belly of the safe. No!!!!
I heard a paper drop quietly behind me. I stopped in my tracks and cried in disbelief. I was stuck!
It was dark and smelled of money. Money. I love money oh how rich I ‘d be if I had money. Now look where I’ve ended up because of money.
The walls start to close in on me. I can’t breathe, I can’t think. What do I do?
Bang Bang Bang, my hands sweat. I’m scared. I panic, cry, yelp, yell, scream! How could I be trapped, this is crazy! It’s hot. It’s dark. It’s scary.
My deep breaths fill the safe. I feel like I can’t breathe. I can’t do anything but panic. My neck curve, back aching – panic. Will panicking work?
Here is the link for the Atawhai Rubrics Term 3, Weeks 1 and 2. Have a look at what your child may be up to in rooms 17, 18 or 19 this term.
1 July 2016, Room 18 and 19 headed to the Vodafone Event Centre to attend Toi Matariki . We split into three different groups and completed three different workshops. The workshops included flax weaving, kotuhi (stone painting) and musical experimentation.
What a great way to celebrate Matariki.
