Reunion Island is small. It is in the Indian Ocean. It is 600 kilometres from Madagascar.

Something washes up on the island. It is two-metres long. It is part of a plane. It is from a Boeing 777

This part may be from the lost Malaysia Airlines flight MH370”. The plane got lost in March, 2014. The plane was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Two hundred and thirty-nine people were on that plane.

Experts look at the part. They may give us some information soon.

Difficult words: wash up (to be moved somewhere by the sea), may (can or cannot), was/were (past of “is”/“are”).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think will the piece tell us?
