School gardens competition 

Amy: Our class has just won a prize for our school garden in a competition – and they’re going to make a TV film about it! The judges liked our garden because the flowers are all different colors – and we painted some more on the wall around it. My cousin gave us advice about what to grow – she’s learning about gardening at college. We’re planning to grow some vegetables next year. I just hope the insects don’t eat them all!

Flora:  We heard about the school garden competition on a TV programme. We decided to enter and won second prize! There’s a high wall in our garden where many red and yellow climbing flowers grow and it looks as pretty as a painting! Our prize is a visit to a special garden where there are lots of butterflies and other insects. My aunt works there and she says it’s amazing. 

Louisa: The garden our class entered in the competition is very special. The flowers we’ve grown are all yellow! They look lovely on the video we made of the garden. We also grew lots of carrots and potatoes, and everyone says they taste fantastic. It was an interesting project. Our teacher taught us lots of things about the butterflies in our garden. We also watched a TV programme about them and did some paintings to put on the classroom wall.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Dear Ronnie,

How are you? Thanks for your email last week. It was great to hear from you. I'm pleased that you are enjoying your new school and that you have made some new friends.

The project you described in your letter sounds very interesting! I have some ideas that might help you. The title of the project is "Ways to Make my School Better" - is that right? Well first of all, how about talking about the rules? Are there any rules that the students would like to change? Have you spoken to your classmates about any of the rules that they don’t like? Why don't you suggest some new rules?

I've got a second idea for your project too. How about talking about the clubs at the school? You might have some nice ideas about new hobbies for the pupils. Is there a music club or a film-making club? Why don't you suggest some new clubs that are interesting for people your age?

The third idea I had was about the buildings in the school. Why don’t you suggest ways to make the buildings look nicer? How about some pictures or photos on the walls inside the school? That can make the classrooms look good. Do you think the teachers would like that idea?

Anyway, I hope these ideas are helpful. I look forward to reading your project. Send it to me by email when you have finished it. Let me know if you need any more help.

Bye for now,

Read the passage and choose the correct word to fill in the blank.

London's Tower Bridge

Many tourists (0) have visited Tower Bridge. It is the only bridge over the river Thames that can open and let ships pass under it. Tower Bridge was built in 1894 and uses the same machines to lift up the two halves of the bridge. In earlier times, the river was busier than now and the bridge to open over a thousand times a year. Today, it only opens twice a week.

In 1952, a big red bus was the middle of the bridge it started to open. The driver only just got to the other side in time! Of course, now are lights at each end and the traffic must wait for them to go green.

For each question, write the correct answer. Write ONE word for each gap.

TO: Gabriella

FROM: Heidi

Hi Gabriella,

You're (0) from the island of Sicily, aren’t you? I really need you help me with my homework! I went to the library yesterday to for a book because I need some information about Sicily. I couldn't find good books there, just an old map!

Can I ask you a few questions?

First, big is the island? When did it become part of Italy? I like to know one more thing. Farmers grow lemons there, but can they grow other fruit too? Please email me your answers as as possible!
