Trophies are stolen – level 1

28-01-2015 07:00

This news is from England. Thieves drive into the doors of a factory. They break the doors and get inside. They steal 60 trophies.

This makes the factory’s staff very sad. They want the trophies back.

The thieves throw the trophies into a lake. Somebody sees the trophies. People find around 20 trophies in the lake.

Difficult words: thief (somebody who takes people’s things), trophy (you can get this award when you win a game or contest), staff (people who work somewhere).

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