Making Plans for the Weekend

It’s Friday afternoon and Luke and Ben are in the school library. Luke is searching online to

see if there is anything exciting to do at the weekend…

Ben: Hi Luke, how are things? What are you up to?

Luke: Hi, Ben! I’m searching online to see if there’s anything exciting on this weekend.

Look! On Sunday afternoon, there’s a comedy show on at the Orchard cinema. What about

going there?

Ben: Mm… I don’t really feel like going to that. I don’t want to sit there all afternoon. Is

there anything more exciting to do?

Luke: Let me see… Oh, the football club are holding an event on Saturday with football

matches, live music and fireworks afterwards. Do you fancy going there?

Ben: Yes, let’s do that! Is there a special occasion?

Luke: Yes, it’s the tenth birthday of the club.

Ben: Sounds great! When does it start? We need to get there early!

Luke: Good idea. It starts at 10.30 am, so let’s meet at your house at 9:30?

Ben: Great. See you tomorrow!
