Hi,
We’re doing a project on school

Thanks,

Lesson 4

Listen to the story. How do the children get lost?
Desert survival
Where is the camp?
Luke and Sally’s parents
work in Mali. They track
the desert elephants.
The children are on
their way to spend
the holidays with their
parents. It’s too late to
continue the journey
tonight. They stop
and light a fre.
Sally and Luke decide to climb
the dune. They don’t notice
the clouds on the horizon.
Look! That can’t be fog!
Oh no! It’s a
sand storm. Quick!
Let’s go back.
Suddenly there is sand
fying everywhere.
The children shelter
behind some rocks.
Soon it’s dark and they
fall asleep. They wake up
the next morning and look
for the camp. They can
only see desert. The children
are lost, so they look
for the sand dune.
It’s north of here,
over that sand dune.
Is that the right
sand dune?
I don’t know. Sand
dunes move in the wind.

Find words in the story that sound the same as...
So they stay by the rocks
and wait. They make a small
tent with their jackets and
look for supplies in their
backpacks. The children
shelter from the sun and ration
their water. They wait for
the stars to appear.
There it is! The pole
star is always
in the same place.
Yes! And it points north.
Come on!
The children walk north
for two hours. Then they hear a
vehicle and they see some car lights.
They start shouting and waving.
But nobody can hear or see them.
The rescue party is there
very soon and the children’s
parents are with them.
I’ve got an idea. Give me
the torch! Three short,
three long and three short.
SOS! That’s
brilliant, Sally.
Let’s get these desert explorers
back to camp in time for dinner!
Good!
We’re starving!
