Lucy Goes To The Museum
Helen Green is a clever girl who loves school. Helen likes learning and (4) ......................... out about old things, so she was very happy when her mum said, ‘Today, we are going to a place full of old things like cups, bowls, chairs, dolls and dinosaurs!
Can you (5) ......................... where we are going to go?’ Helen’s little sister Lucy didn’t answer, but Helen shouted, ‘A museum!’ Mum smiled and said, ‘Helen’s right. Let’s go!’
When they were there, Mum took the girls to the dinosaur room, but Lucy didn’t want to go in. ‘What’s the matter? Why are you (6) ......................... ?’ asked Helen.
‘The dinosaurs might eat me,’ said Lucy and she started to cry.
My name’s Richard, and I live in a small village with my older sister and my parents. Last Tuesday, my friend William came to our house and we went swimming together. When we were in the water, we saw some silver fish. Katy said, ‘Look, I can swim faster than the fish!’ William said, ‘So can I!’
Then Katy said, ‘Let’s see who can swim across the lake the fastest! Let’s have a race!’ William likes to have competitions, and so does Katy, but I don’t because I am the youngest and so I never win. I was last again. I felt tired and unhappy.
William said, ‘OK. Let’s have one more competition. Let’s see who can jump the highest out of the water. Richard, you go first.’
I jumped up, then Katy jumped, then William. I jumped the lowest, and William jumped the highest. William shouted, ‘I am the best at jumping! I am the best!’ But when he was shouting, a beautiful gold fish jumped out of the water, much higher than William.
I laughed and said, ‘No, William, that beautiful fish is the best!’
