Jimmy Jones was bored.

'l wish I had something interesting to do,' he thought. And I wish I could do this Maths. I wish lwas clever.' Jimmy was staring at his Maths text book. 'l wish it was the summer,' he sighed. 'Then I wouldn't have any homework. And I wish ...'

'Now I know it's a joke,'thought Jimmy, 'My books are still here!'

Something inside his bag rang. Jimmy pulled out his phone and found the message.

He opened his Maths exercise book and his

mouth fell open. There was the weekend's homework in his Maths book, finished, in Jimmy's own handwriting.

'l'm dreaming,'said Jimmy, 'but I don't want to wake up!' He opened his French book. There, under today's date, was a paragraph about his summer holidays, in French and in his handwriting.

'Weird!' said Jimmy. He looked for the sender's number, but it wasn't there.

'lt's a joke,' he thought. He looked back at his Maths book. 'Oh dear! This will take hours! | wish I didn't have any homework this weekend.' The phone rang again.

In his Geography book he found a map of Europe with allthe capital cities, and in his Science book there were two neat diagrams. Jimmy carefully closed his books and put them all back in his bag. He sat on the edge of his bed and breathed deeply. 'Yes,' he said at last, 'l'll be very, very careful.'

A lot of families have pets, especially cats and dogs. English football is famous of course, but there is another national sport too - cricket. Many English people love cricket, but it is not so popular in Wales, Scotland or lreland. Some cricket matches continue for five days, and often there isn,t even a winner!

In the south of England you will find some beautiful villages. Some of the houses and cottages have thatched roofs. 'Thatcher' is an English surname. Many English surnames are the names of jobs, for example Butcher, Baker, Wheeler, Farmer, potter. The two oldest and most famous universities in

Well, we play it on a football pitch, but you don't have to. You can play it in your garden, or in the park. Does it have to be on grass? No, it doesn't, but I think grass is best.

You must have a net and two goals. Well, they don't have to be real goals. We usually use jumpers for goal posts. Yeah, well, anyway ... you can play with a partner, but you don't have to. You have to get the ball over the net and score a goal. Do you use a tennis ball? Well, yes, usually. lt doesn't have to be a tennis ball. You can use a football, but it's more difficult.

Must you use a racket? Yes, you have to use a racket. You mustn't kick the ball, or head it! So, do you have to hit the ball over the net and into the goal? Can the ball bounce? Oh, yesl And you don't have to stay on your side of the net. You can run round to the other side. But the ball must go over the net first. And it must go into your opponent's goal, of course!

The next day was Monday. Jimmy usually got up at the last minute on schooldays, but this day was different. His mother didn't have to shout at him, and he didn't have to run to the bus stop. The bus was late, as usual, and when it came, Jimmy and his friend Andy had to stand.

Freses?tatEon Listen and read. 'l won't have to do any homework today!' Jimmy had all day to think about his next wish. He decided to go for a walk. He picked up his phone and went downstairs. It was very cold outside, and he had to put on his warmest coat. Jimmy hated the cold. 'l wish ... ,' but then he stopped. 'l nearly did it again,' he thought, 'l will have to be more careful in future.' He was thinking about money. lf he wished for lots of money, he could share it with his friends. They would certainly have fun. But which friends? Would they argue? And how much money would he wish for? 'l'll have to keep it secret,' he thought. But then, if nobody knew, it wouldn't be much fun. He was in the town centre now. He looked in the shop windows. 'l must take my time,' he thought. 'l mustn't do anything stupid.'
