Stig of the Dump Pages 20 & 21

Barney didn’t want to go to the pit and find – nothing! He stood with his hands in his pockets, playing with something hard. He remembered something and pulled out the thing in his hand. Of course – the flint! He’d seen Stig make it! Of course Stig was real.

He started running. He stopped again. Maybe he had just found the flint and imagined everything else. He remembered flints were made by people that lived thousands of years ago and kept in museums. He told himself all he really wanted to do was to look at the place where he had fallen over yesterday.

He carried on. Something moved by his feet. His heart jumped but it was only a rabbit! He climbed over the fence and went carefully towards the edge of the pit.

  1. What did Barney pull out of his pocket?
  2. Why did Barney now think the Stig was real?
  3. What did Barney remember about flints?
  4. What did he decide he wanted to look at?
  5. How did Barney feel when something moved by his feet? How do you know? Use evidence. (2 marks)
  6. Find and copy the adverb that describes how Barney moved towards the pit.
