Reading Comprehension

 

‘At the Airport’

Uncle John was coming home.  He had been in Australia for three years. That was a long time. Kevin had been five when he went away. He talked to Uncle John on Mum’s laptop but it was still hard to think of him as a real person sometimes. He was more like someone on T.V.

Now the family were waiting for John in the airport. Mum and Dad and Laura and Ciara and Aunt Jenny and Uncle Frank and Granny were all there.  Laura and Ciara had made a big sign. “Welcome home Uncle John”, it read.

All the grown-ups were laughing and smiling. Kevin was feeling tired. They had left home very early that morning to get to the airport. He yawned.

Then Dad said, “There he is!”

A tall smiling man walked towards them. He looked just like the man on Mum’s laptop.

He was carrying three toy kangaroos in his arms and was pulling a big suitcase. Everyone cheered and ran to hug him. Then Kevin saw that all the grown-ups were crying. Weren’t they supposed to be happy?

 

Answer the questions.

                Who was coming home?

                How long had he been away?

                How many people were waiting?
