School cooking competition

Alice

Our class has just won a prize in a cooking competition - and we're going to be on the local TV news tonight. The judges liked our pizzas because they were delicious and we also made pasta with sauce and dessert for the children in our school for lunch yesterday. Our teacher is married to a chef who helped us with our main course. We're planning to bake some cakes tomorrow and sell them. We want to get enough money to pay for a school trip.

Eva

Our class teacher heard about the cooking competition on the local TV news and told us about it. We decided to enter and won second prize! We made rice and vegetables, lemonade and dessert for our parents. We turned the school hall into a restaurant for one evening. Our prize is a visit to the kitchens of a famous restaurant in our city - Gigi's. My cousin works there and she says the food is amazing.

The food our class made for the cooking competition was amazing. We baked a lot of cakes - chocolate, orange, lemon and honey.

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

A successful singer

Carol is a singer in a pop group. Her story is unusual. Carol is in a group called Girls Together. "I started singing to other people in church when I was eight" she says. "I've always loved singing. I sing all the time at home. Actually, the only time I didn't sing was during my school lessons because my teachers would not have been happy."

When Carol was sixteen, she was in a singing competition on the TV. Her dream was to be a famous singer, like Madonna or Lady Gaga. "I hadn't thought about being in a group. I didn't have any friends who sang or played the guitar or drums," she says.

Carol got a big surprise during the competition because the music teachers wanted to put her in a group with three other girls. She told her parents she wasn't happy because no one would know her as a singer on her own. Carol's parents just wanted her to be happy.

Although Carol wanted to sing on her own, she spent some time with the other girls and saw that she could have lots of fun with them. So she decided to sing with them. The music teachers told her that she had made the most important decision of her life.

Now the group is famous and all the girls are making a lot of money. However, Carol loves singing in the group for other reasons. Carol says, "We have been to so many wonderful places and different countries. I miss my parents but the other girls are like my new family and this helps me not to feel sad."
