Ethan: I'm good at running.

Aiden: I'm the fastest in my class.

Robbie: I'm third.

Ethan: No, I'm fifth!

Aiden: Yeah, you're so slow.

Liam: I'm second.

Ethan: I'm the best at running. I'm way faster than you, Aiden.

Aiden: So why do your friends want to chase me in the playground at break time?

Ethan: I'm also good at doing my writing.

Robbie: I'm good at two stuffs - running and walking.

Rebekah: I know what I'm good at. I'm good at skipping and running, because I'm fast.

Faye: I've got bad news. On Friday, Robbie always has to annoy me.

Liam: I'm really good at baseball. You have to keep practising to get good. Somebody throws the ball and then I hit it.

Ethan: I've got a cricket game at home. I'm good at that. I throw the ball and my mum and gran keep missing it. And I didn't even knock down the poles.

Faye: I'm good at chasing boys.

Aiden: She is really good at chasing me.

Ethan: I'm really good at chasing girls.

Aiden: No, you're not.

Ethan: I'm rubbish at tidying up my room - I keep forgetting.

Rebekah: I'm not good at tidying up wrappers that I take off my presents.

Ethan: I'm the same! I want to be really good at boxing when I'm older. I practise by punching my couch.

Faye: I want to be a hairdresser. You have to be good at cutting hairs. I practise on my Barbie dolls. I watch someone cutting hair, but I don't cut my Barbie dolls' hair, I just put bobbles in it. And dip it in water.

Rebekah: I want to be a hairdresser. I've got a hairdryer, and it only needs batteries, and it's a little one. Santa got me it.

Ethan: I want to be an Olympic person.

Aiden: He is copying me.

Ethan: I want to be practising the double jump. And the high jump. And then I'll fall on my head when I land.

Faye: I'm really good at funny things. I'm good at funny voices and funny actions.

Aiden: Ethan copies people.

Faye: Robbie copies me.

Aiden: After school, I'm going to be really good at science. At potions and potions.

Faye: Can I sing you a science song? It's bubbling, it's bubbling, it's bubbling in my soul, there's singing, and laughing, since Jesus made me whole.

Rebekah: I know what I'm good at. I'm good at trapping people. I just put my leg around my friend and then she can't get her foot out.
