Below is a short story about my friend Bob. Read it and see if you can answer questions on it.

Bob had been working hard all weekend. He had stayed up until nine o’clock working out how to add three digit numbers. He even learnt all his spellings and was actually looking forward to the test on Monday morning. He placed all his homework on the kitchen table and went to bed. On Sunday, he finished his Geography homework and put that on the table too.

In the night, he woke to a bright light beaming through his window. He peered out and saw a small, green spaceship land in his front garden. He put on his dressing gown and walked downstairs and into the garden.

“We come in peace,” said a voice from within the spaceship.

Bob was scared.

“Our planet is in mortal danger and only one thing can save us!” said the voice.

Suddenly a door slid open and revealed a small green alien. “We need your homework or our planet will explode!”

Bob did what any good boy would do – he handed over his homework and saved the planet!

The end.

  1. On which day did he do his Geography homework?
    Geography is a lesson about the world, maps, and features of our planet.
  2. What was Bob looking forward to?
    He was looking forward to the test on Monday.
  3. What woke Bob up?
    If Bob had curtains, this wouldn't have happened. We can assume or infer, that Bob either doesn't have curtains or didn't pull them closed properly.
  4. What is the first thing the alien says to Bob?
    The film ET stands for Extra Terrestrial and was written by Steven Spielberg.
  5. What does Bob do first when he sees the light through his window?
    This alien comes from Mars, which is known as the Red Planet.
  6. What colour is the alien?
    ET, from the film, isn't a boy or a girl! He is both and neither!
  7. Where did Bob keep his homework?
    Mars has the tallest mountain out of all the planets, including Earth.
  8. Why do the aliens need Bob's homework?
    We don't learn the actual reason why they want the homework, we just know they do!
  9. Why would Bob feel a little upset about the situation?
    The story suggests he spent a long time doing his homework and now he hasn't got any left to show his teacher. We think he is probably sad and feels sorry for the aliens but their planet has been saved and so, Bob won't feel sad anymore.
  10. How do you think the aliens feel when Bob hands them the homework?
    We don't know this as a fact but we can make a good guess that they would be feeling very relieved and happy that their planet can now be saved.
