Every year, thousands of people take part in different activities such as charity walk or run to show their support for Christopher?s Smile. The students of Grade 6 at LVS Ascot Junior School also wanted to do something for the sick children. They organized the event “Pyjama Day” to support Christopher?s Smile. “We wanted to raise money for our charity in a way that the whole school could join in it, so each pupil paid ￡1 to wear his or her pyjamas to school on Pyjama Day,” said the young organizers. Both the students and their teachers took part in the event with great interest. Together they not only raised some money, but also had a good time. 11. Who set up Christopher?s Smile? A.

The following tips(建议) can help keep disagreements constructive (建设性的). Don’t make it personal. If you get upset, it can help to remember that you?re mad at the person?s idea, not the person. Never criticize the other person’s idea. Instead of saying “That?s a stupid idea!”, try: “I don?t agree, and here?s why.” Never shout loudly and you?ll have a much better chance of getting your idea across. Use “I” statements to communicate how you feel and what you think. Using “you” statements can sound argumentative (好争论的). For example, telling your mom “You always remind me about my chores when I have a lot of homework” has a very different tone (语气) from “I?m under pressure because I have a lot of homework tonight. Can I do those chores tomorrow?” Listen to the other point of view. When the other person is talking, try to stop thinking about why you disagree or what you?ll say next. Instead, focus on what?s being said. When it?s your turn to talk, repeat any key points the other person made to show you have paid attention to what was said. Then calmly express why you disagree. Stay calm. This is the most important thing you can do to keep a conversation go on well. 26. What does the underlined word “focus” mean in the third paragraph? A.专注 B.赞赏 C.同意 D. 诠释 27. What should we do when the other person is talking according to the passage?

Well, we usually travel because we want to see other countries and visit places that are famous, interesting or beautiful. We travel to meet new friends, to try new kinds of food, to experience life in other parts of the world or simply to get away from cold weather. However, there are other reasons for adventure(冒险) travel. Many of today?s adventure travelers are looking for an unusual experience and adventure travel is becoming more and more popular. Here is a quick look at two popular activities: hiking and rafting . Instead of spending your vacation on a bus, in a hotel or sitting on the beach, you may want to try hiking. Hiking is great way to travel. You will get close to nature and take exercise at the same time. Hiking is easy to do and doesn?t have to be very expensive. You can hike close to home or other places. The basic equipment you need for hiking is simple: good shoes, clothes and a backpack. You can hike in the mountains, in a forest or along a river. You can also go for a hiking in the city. Another exciting adventure is rafting. A raft is a small boat that you can use to paddle(划 桨) down rivers and streams. Rafting is a good way to experience nature. If you want a normal rafting trip, choose a quiet stream or river that is wide and has few fallen trees or rocks. As with hiking, you should always think about your safety and wear good clothes. You also need to learn the basic skills, such as how to handle the raft, how to paddle and how to get in and out of the raft. You should not raft unless you know how to swim, and you should always wear a life jacket. 31. Adventure travelers want to _ _________. A. experience something exciting and unusual B. meet new friends and get away from bad weather. C. try new kinds of food and see other countries. D. visit famous sites or beautiful places 32. Hiking is a good way of traveling because ___________. A. it is not easy to do B. you can exercise your body in nature. C. you need a lot of equipment for it D. you will often put yourself in danger

Which word is close in meaning to “rafting” in the third para.? A. boating B. running C. jumping D. diving 35. The author wrote this passage mainly to introduce ________. A. something about hiking B. something about rafting C. the safety rules of traveling D. two exciting ways of traveling H It?s easy to see how to help some people, but what about those whose needs are not so clear ? This story may have happened not long ago--- but it was a lesson which has stayed with me and helped me ever since. It was Thanksgiving and I was volunteering with my parents at a shelter for the needy. We served hot food to whoever came in. Most of our dinners looked like they had been having hard times; their clothes were worn out and dirty. Then, a man came in, who looked anything but needy. He was well dressed. I wondered what he was doing there and my jaw (下巴) dropped in amazement when he joined the line for food. The closer he came to my service station , the more I muttered (小声抱怨). What was this man doing? Surely he wasn?t going to take food which was meant for those who were really in need! Then my mother quietly took me to one side. She said, “You have thought that the needs of the people who come here must be purely physical, hunger, etc. And this gentleman doesn?t seem to have any of those problems. But what if his needs are emotional 情感的） What if he （ ? needs comfort, friends, or just to be among other human beings? Her words hit me like a ton of bricks! I felt like I should apologize to the man--- but I didn?t. About a week later the shelter received a large donation from an anonymous source. I can?t help but wonder if it came from that man. Now, whenever I meet someone I remember my mother?s lesson and try to send kindness their way, no matter how they look. Needs aren?t always seen. But kindness always makes a difference. 36. How did the author feel as the well-dressed man joined the line for food? A. Surprised B. Excited C. Nervous D. Hopeless 37. The author?s mother mainly wanted to tell the author that we ______. A. shouldn?t judge a man by his appearance. B. shouldn?t complain about others C. should give others what they want. D. should accept everything we meet 38.

I After an earthquake most survivors can be expected to recover over time, especially with the support of family and friends. Some families will be able to return to their normal life quickly, but others will have to contend with the destruction of their homes, medical problems, and injury to family members. Children especially will need time to recover from the loss of a loved one or a pet or from the closing down of their school. Children often come to adults for information, comfort and help. Parents should try to remain calm, answer children?s questions honestly and remain understanding when they see changes in their children?s behavior. Children react(反应) differently to an earthquake depending on their ages, developmental levels and former experiences. Some will remain silent and not communicate with people, while others will have angry outbursts(爆发). Parents should keep an eye on each child?s reactions. Parents should spend time talking to their children, letting them know that it?s OK to ask questions and to share their worries. Although it may be hard to find time to have these talks, parents can use regular family meal times or bed times for them. They should answer questions shortly and honestly and be sure to ask their children for their opinions and ideas. Problems may come up more than once and parents should remain patient when you answer the questions again. After talking about the earthquake with young children, parents might read their favorite story or have a relaxing family activity to help them calm down. Parents should also tell children they are safe and should spend more time with them. They could play games outside or read together indoors. Most importantly, be sure to tell them you love them. 41. What?s the passage mainly about? A. How to prepare before an earthquake happens B. What to do in an earthquake C. How to face the loss of a loved one in an earthquake D. How to help children recover mentally (精神上) from an earthquake 42. The underlined “contend with” in Para. 1 can be changed into “______”. A. deal with B. make up C. put off D. turn to 43. When children ask the same question again, parents should _______.

Which of the following pieces of advice is NOT mentioned in the passage?
高一英语阅读能力竞赛题 第 9 页 共 16 页

All people will recover from an earthquake quickly. B. Children may need a longer time to recover after an earthquake. C. Children should turn to their classmates for help after an earthquake. D. Children react in the same way as adults do to an earthquake. J The clock rules our lives. The more we try to save time, the less time we seem to have. In every area of our lives we are doing things faster. And many of us live in towns and cities which are getting noisier and more stressful as each day passes. But now a worldwide movement, whose aim is to slow life down, has started. Its supporters are people who believe that a happier and healthier way of life is possible. The Slow Food movement was founded the day that an Italian journalist, Carlo Petrini, saw that McDonald?s had opened a restaurant in a beautiful square in Rome. He thought it was sad that many people today live too quickly to sit down for a proper meal and only eat much fast food. He decided that he had to try to do something about it and so he started the Slow Food movement. Slow Food has become a global organization ever since and now has more than 80,000 members in 100 countries. [来源:Z*xx*k.Com] Slow Food also encourages people to eat local and regional food, to use local shops and markets, to eat out in small family restaurants, and to cook with traditional recipes. The idea of Slow Cities was inspired by the Slow Food movement. The aim of Slow Cities is to improve people?s quality of life. Towns which want to become a Slow City have to reduce traffic and noise, increase the number of green areas, plant trees, build pedestrian zones, and promote local businesses and traditions. Now it has spread to other countries all over the world, from the UK to Japan and Australia. There are now 135 Slow Cities in 24 countries across the world that have been named since founding of the organization in 1999. Gao Chun County, in east China?s Jiangsu Province, is expected to be named the first “Slow City” in China next year. “Slow Cities are about having a community life in the town,” said a local resident. “It is not ?slow? as in ?stupid?. It is ?slow? as in the opposite of ?worried? and ?stressful?.” But not everybody is happy. For teenagers, who have to go 25km to Norwich, the nearest city, to buy CDs, living in a Slow City is not very attractive. “It?s all right here,” says Lewis Cook, 16. “But if you want excitement, you have to go to Norwich. We need more things here for young people.” 46. What?s the aim of the Slow Food movement? A. To call on people to eat out. B. To make people enjoy cooking. C. To drive McDonald?s out of Rome D. To encourage people to slow down. 47. All the following are necessary to be a Slow City EXCEPT ______.

From the fourth paragraph, we know that ______. A. the Slow Food was founded in 1999 B. there is no Slow City in China now C. Slow Cities are mainly in the UK D. there are about 24 Slow Cities in the world 49. What?s Lewis Cook?s attitude to living in a Slow City? A. Positive B. Neutral C. Negative D. Indifferent 50. What would be the best title for the passage? A. Slow down and you?ll move fast B. Time flies never to be recalled. C. Eat slowly and you?ll be healthy. D. Pay attention to the quality of life.

A natural disaster strikes in a remote part of the world, causing destruction and suffering. Villages are flattened and people are forced into camps. It is now happening in China, after the earthquake of magnitude（里氏）8 that was centered on Wenchuan but shook the entire country. Actually, in the past centuries, there were hundreds of thousands of earthquakes in different parts of the world. In Sept. 1923, Tokyo and Yokohama were both destroyed by an earthquake and the fires that followed it. They had to be completely rebuilt. One of the most serious earthquakes was in China?s Shanxi Province in 1556. It claimed almost one million people. We measure an earthquake?s strength on the Richter scale. The Richter scale was introduced in 1935 in Southern California in the USA. It measures earthquakes on a scale of one to ten. Any earthquake measuring five or more is usually serious. The earth?s crust (地壳) is made up of layers of rock called plates. As these plates move, they sometimes crash against each other, causing the crust to quake. In cities such as Tokyo, where small quakes happen quite often, many modern buildings are designed to be flexible so when the earth moves, they move with it.
