Aliens Love Underpants

Read the story of Aliens love Underpants here

Watch the story of Aliens Love Underpants being read on CBeebies bedtime here

After reading and watching the story, encourage your child to answer these questions:


Why did the aliens come to Earth?

What did the aliens want to steal?
What pattern did you like best?

Can you find a spotty pair of pants?

Can you find a stripy pattern?

Can you find a pair of pants with flowers on them?

How did the aliens save the Earth?

Where was the alien hiding at the end of the story?

Once your child has listened to, and watched the story many times help them to make a story map. A story map is simple pictures and words putting the story in order so that they can read and retell the story again and again.

Can your child draw a picture of their favorite alien from the story? They might like you to help them to write the word alien or words to describe what their alien looks like. Perhaps they could have a go at writing the words themselves, you could write for them or how about making a video of your child writing. Your child could draw a picture of their favourite pattern and you could help them write the different types of patterns they see: spotty, stripy, zigzag.

We want to see your Aliens!!! Send in your pictures and videos to [email protected] – we would love to see them and put some on the website for others to see.

Alliteration is when words begin with the same sound. You can make up fun sentences like Jumping Jackie Jogs eating Jelly and Jam.


Which food will each alien want to eat?


Can you make an alliterative sentence about you using your name?

Remember all the things have to start with the same sound of your name!
