The Fox and the Stork
One day a Fox invited a Stork to her house for a meal. The Fox brought out two flat plates with soup on them.
“Stork, the meal is nothing fancy, but I hope you like it!” The Fox deliciously lapped up all of the soup on her plate.
“Yum, this is so good!”
“Eat up, Stork!” But the Stork wasn’t able to taste it. The Stork’s beak was too long and pointy to eat the soup off the flat dish.
“OH, Stork! You must not like the soup, and then I shall eat your soup for you!”
The next day the Stork invited the Fox over to her house for a meal. The Stork put some soup into two long thin- necked jars. “Fox, this is a special family recipe. I hope you enjoy!”
The Stork put her beak in the long thin — necked jar and she ate soup.
“Mm, yum! This is my favorite soup”. But this time the Fox wasn’t able to taste it. Her wide snout could not fit inside the thin long- necked jar.
“Oh, I’m sorry, Fox. I guess you must not like the soup”,
As the stork said again, how yummy the soup was, she began to eat all of Fox’s soup too.

I totally love museums. They really are one of the most important parts of our culture. Museums are important for so many things. They educate us, they preserve our history, and they show us how we have developed. There are museums on so many different things. In fact, I’m sure there isn’t a topic there isn’t a museum for. I’ve loved museums since I was little. We used to go to different museums on school trips. I loved them. I saw so many amazing things. I will never forget seeing the bones of a T-Rex in the natural history museum. I also remember staring at Tutankhamun’s gold mask for ages. I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. The best museum I’ve ever been to is the National Museum in Cairo. It’s unbeatable.

Transcript for listening task
How did all the planets get there? How is it only our planet has life? Will we ever travel to other planets? I often think about these questions. I think our planet is the best. It looks so beautiful from space with its mixture of blue and green. The other planets look too strange to me. Mercury is just a red, hot ball, pretty much the same as Mars. Saturn looks like a real planet. Its rings give it an extra-special look. The other planets don’t look that interesting. I don’t really know much about Venus, Neptune, Uranus and Jupiter. When I was at school, we learnt that Pluto was a planet. However now it is not. Scientists have decided there are now only eight planets in our solar system and not nine. I wonder why they dropped Pluto.

Transcript for listening task
One day there was a big storm. Lightning struck a mountain and a huge rock rolled onto the train line.
Seagull saw what happened. He called his friends: Rabbit, Fox and Mouse.
‘We must move it. The 10:15 London train will be here in one hour,’ said Rabbit.
The animals tried to move it. They pushed and pushed but it would not move.
‘I know,’ said Fox. ‘Let’s get Eric the Engine. He’s stronger than all of us.’ ‘There’s no time,’ said Mouse. ‘I’ll get him,’ shouted Seagull. ‘Help! There is a rock on the train line and the London train is coming very soon.’
Eric tooted his whistle and called his friends. All the engines gathered around. Eric was big and strong but not very fast. He asked the express trains to go ahead. ‘You go first. Then you,’ said Eric, and he sent his friends ahead. ‘I’ll follow you.’

5. Administration rules
During the Assessment cover all visual materials like, diagram, schemes, posters and maps that can serve as prompts for the learners.
At the beginning of the Assessment read out the instructions and inform the learners about the assessment duration. Remind learners that they are not allowed to talk with each other during the Summative Assessment. After the instructions, make sure they have understood given instructions and ask if they have any questions before the start of the assessment.
Ensure that the learners are working individually and not helping each other. During the Summative Assessment learners should not have any access to additional recourses that can help them, for example, dictionary (excluding the cases when it is allowed in specification)
Recommend learners to cross the wrong answers instead of using an eraser.
During the assessment you can answer learners’ questions, regarding the instructions and the assessment duration. You should not spell, paraphrase or provide any information that could give the learner an advantage.
Always tell the learners that they have 5 minutes left before the end of the Summative Assessment.
Tell the learners to stop writing and put down their pens/pencils on the desks at the end of the Summative Assessment.
6. Moderation and marking
All teachers use the same version of the mark scheme. During the moderation process it is necessary to check learner sample papers with the marks awarded to ensure there are no deviations from the standardised mark scheme.
