Cold Water Experiance

I glide onto the water slide and zip around the sharp corners. Reaching the lake, the bitter water engulfs me like an old wrinkly octopus. My fingers, wrinkled and damp, felt like a scaly fish.

Clambering onto the water trampoline, everyone bounced like baby kangaroos on a sunny day. Children ran from side to side to make others fall off, eventually they drop like flies. Jumping into the murky water wondering what my feet will discover.

Child Racism

Thousands of kids and adults every year get bullied and abused because of their colour, religion and ethnicity. In a 2009 report, 2/3 of the criminals receiving life sentences were not whites. Black children are much more likely to be suspended and expelled from school than whites.

Zoom out

This activity needs your help. 


You are invited to build on to the story by adding a comment. This means you need to zoom out of the image below with your imagination...like who is holding the ice cream? What else might be in the picture if you zoomed out a bit? What might happen next?

Be sure to read others' comments first, and continue the story, by zooming out even further. We could build an amazing story. Give it a go!


So, here is the start of the story...

I stare at the soft golden sun creeping behind the horizon...

Carry on the story in the comments.
