3.            Zac is playing a computer game which involves sorting coloured shapes that appear on the screen. He has to capture the shapes and drag them to the appropriate collection box. While he plays, he chats to Dan about a football match.

When he has completed Level 1, he moves on to Level 2.  Here, the shapes are replaced by words that have to be sorted according to their meaning. Zac begins to make mistakes and so stops talking to Dan.
