The children were tested on their reading and writing skills before and after the
experiment. Teachers found that after the experiment 58% of the children had
improved their reading skills and 38% had improved their spelling and writing
skills.
Teachers believe that the experiment shows how a poor diet with not many
vitamins affects children's learning. The school now has lessons teaching the
children how to eat healthy.

Exam Tips
When you have finished writing there are a number
of things you should check.

First of all, read through what you have written


and check for spelling problems. Then look at the
punctuation.

Have you got sentences that are far too long,


or that need a comma?

Do the verbs agree with the subject?


Is your use of word order correct or have you
written in the syntax of your native language?

Finally, check your use of tenses to see if they are


correct and appropriate.

questions 21-27, mark A, B or C.

DOGS ESCAPE FROM RESCUE CENTRE


The mystery of the unlocked cages at a rescue centre for dogs had the staff
scratching their heads as much as the dogs scratch themselves.
Just how were up to nine dogs at a time getting out of their locked cages at night
and helping themselves to food and treats from the kitchen?
Some of the staff even wondered if they had a .ghost living at the rescue centre
who was letting the dogs out. To solve the mystery they placed a camera in the building to
see what went on at night. An hour after the staff had left, a friendly, wily dog of mainly
greyhound descent named Red, was caught on camera opening his cage, then going to the
other dogs' cages and opening them.
Red was a very clever dog, after watching the staff unlock and open his cage each
deJy to take him for walks and to feed him, he soon worked out how to open it himself.
It wasn't long before Red was able to open the cages of his 'friends' so that each night
they could all feast and play together while the staff were at home fast asleep!

MADAME TUSSAUDS
Madame Tussauds is a famous wax museum in London with branches in a number of major cities.
It has a lot of famous people made from wax. Wax is a solid substance that becomes soft when warm and
melts easily. It comes from bees and is often used to make candles. Many people visit wax museums
because the sculptures look like they are real.
A visit to Madame Tussauds wouldn't be complete without meeting the Royal Family. Dating
back over ten centuries, the Monarchy has played an important role in the UK, but rather than reading all
about it in a dusty history book you'll meet history's royalties face to face at Madame Tussauds! You can
plant a kiss on Prince William's cheek, or shake Prince Charles's hand.
Of course the late Queen Mother and Diana, Princess of Wales are here too looking as beautiful as ever.
Finally, travel back in time to the Tudor times. Ever heard of Henry VIII? He ruled England in
the sixteenth century and is mostly known for his six wives and for declaring himself head of the new
Church of England.

0 There are many branches of Madame Tussauds

For questions 21 ~27,mark A, B or C.

Good sources of energy


People need energy so we can turn on our lights. use our computers. cook our
food, and lots more. Some ways of getting the energy we need for our electrici-
ty are better than others. There isn't enough coal and oil to last us forever, and
taking them out of the ground is bad for the environment.

The best sources of energy don't hurt the environment and won't run out. In
placeswhere it is often sunny, we can use energy from the sun. We can also
use water power from rivers and from waves in the sea. In windy placeswe can
use wind power. These sources of energy don't cause pollution.

We always have to be careful of the environment when we get our energy. For
example. we shouldn't put wind machines where we know lots of birds will be
flying, becausethey might fly into the machines. But if we choose the right kind
of energy in the right place. we will have good, clean energy for the future.
