1 YEAR 6 ENGLISH LANGUAGE REVISION PAPER FIRST TERM EXAM 1 SECTION A: READING - TEXT A - DRIEST PLACE ATACAMA DESERT If you like dry places, you should go to the Atacama Desert in Chile. There are some parts where it has not rained for 400 years! Other parts get less than one-third of an inch of water every year, and most of that water comes from fog, not rain. There is also a place in the desert called the Valley of the Moon, where dusty peaks of sand and salt look like a scene from a movie that takes place on the moon. This desert is one of the driest places on Earth, it is as dry as a bone. 2 Why is the Atacama Desert so dry? It is actually found between two of the wettest places on Earth: the Pacific Ocean and the Amazon River. But, the Andes Mountains are in the way. They trap any rain that falls and hold it over the Amazon Rain Forest. The desert, on the other side of the mountains, gets none. Another interesting fact about the Atacama is that it is a cold desert. The average elevation, or height above sea level, is close to 8,000feet. This picture shows the Atacama Desert in Chile. The Atacama is one of the driest places on Earth. FACT FILE: Virtually rainless The average rain fall in the region is just one millimeter per year. World s largest supply of Sodium Nitrate Another interesting fact about the Atacama Desert in Chile is that is contains the world s largest natural supply of sodium nitrate. Mars like soil Soil samples on Mars are similar to samples taken from the Chile, South America desert. 3 Do not think that there is no life in this desert. As in all harsh places on Earth, some plants and animals have found ways to survive there. A few small plants grow in this dry place. They have very long roots that reach the water deep in the ground. These plants feed insects and a few animals, such as foxes and llamas. 4 There are a few salt lakes in the desert that were made with water from the last ice age. Big flocks of flamingos fly to the salty lakes. They do not drink the water. Instead, they eat a type of red algae that grows there. Their diet is what makes them bright pink. The flamingos also build nests and raise their young on the salt. 5 One other animal has found a way to live in the Atacama: human beings. They live in tiny villages scattered in the desert. They also live in large towns along the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Most of these towns serve as shipping ports. Many tourists arrive in these towns and take day trips into the huge, dry desert all around them. Word bank: llamas: a large, wooly pack animal related to camel. ice age: a period of time long ago when sheets of ice, glaciers covered much of earth. flamingo: a tall pink wading bird with long legs and neck. diet: the kind of food that an animal usually eats.

6 TEXT B - BLACK BEAUTY Black Beauty is the story of a black horse in England in the 1800s. In this extract, Black Beauty has been harnessed to a cart to take his owner, or master, and his caretaker named John on an trip into town. 1 One day late in the autumn my master had a long journey to go on business. When we got to the town of course I had a good wait, but as the master's business engaged him a long time we did not start for home till rather late in the afternoon. It had been raining a great deal, and while it had stopped raining, the wind was blowing very hard across the moonlit sky. The great branches were swaying about like twigs, and the rushing sound was terrible. So back we went and round by the crossroads, but by the time we got to the bridge it was very nearly dark; we could just see that the water was over the middle of it; but as that happened sometimes when the floods were out, master did not stop. We were going along at a good pace, but the moment my feet touched the first part of the bridge I felt sure there was something wrong. I dare not go forward, and I made a dead stop. Go on, Beauty, said my master, and he gave me a touch with the whip, but I dare not stir; he gave me a sharp cut; I jumped, but I dare not go forward. 2 There s something wrong, sir, said John, and he sprang out of the dog-cart and came to my head and looked all about. He tried to lead me forward. Come on, Beauty, what s the matter? Of course I could not tell him, but I knew very well that the bridge was not safe. Just then the man at the toll-gate on the other side ran out of the house, tossing a torch about like one mad. Hoy, hoy, hoy! halloo! stop! he cried. What s the matter? shouted my master. The bridge is broken in the middle, and part of it is carried away; if you come on you ll be into the river. 3 Thank God! said my master. You Beauty! said John, and took the bridle and gently turned me round to the right hand road by the river side. The sun had set long time; the wind seemed to have lulled off after that furious blast which tore up the tree. It grew darker and darker, stiller and stiller. I trotted quietly along, the wheels hardly making a sound on the soft road. For a good while neither master nor John spoke, then master began in a serious voice. I could not understand much of what they said, but I found they thought, if I had gone on as the master wanted me, most likely the bridge would have given way under us, and horse, chaise, master, and man would have fallen into the river; and as the current was flowing very strongly, and there was no light and no help at hand, it was more than likely we should all have been drowned.
