The Three of Them1. The sea was ten minutes away from the farm, no more. So there was hardly a day of Charley’slife that she didn’t go down to the beach.2. The beach was her favourite place to escape to. Farm chores were definitely not her idea of fun– except bottle-feeding lambs or calves – but if there were sheds to clean, and there alwayswere, she’d run off down to the beach.3. The trouble was that as soon as he was old enough, Alex would always follow Charley. Alexwas her little brother and he talked a lot. He was seven by this time. She was twelve and liked todo her thinking and her sulking on her own. But wherever she went he went, and wherever theywent Manfred, their black sheep dog came with them.4. Charley, Alex and Manfred would go swimming in the sea in summer, the three of them.They’d sit down and watch the waves tumbling in towards the shore. They’d chase the gullswhenever they saw them flying over the oystercatchers. They’d skim stones if the sea was calmenough – twenty-six bounces was Charley’s record – Alex had only ever managed two!Whatever they did, wherever they went, the three of them were always together.5. All their friends thought Manfred was a funny sort of a name for a dog. Apparently Charley hadcalled him after their toy dog, Little Manfred, a wooden dachshund, painted brown with redwheels.6. Their Mum had played with Little Manfred when she was little. Then Charley’d had him to playwith for a while, and now he belonged to Alex. Only Alex wasn’t that interested in him anymore, mostly because he’d grown out of him, but also because Little Manfred only had threewheels by now, and didn’t work very well.7. Their Dad had trodden on Little Manfred the Christmas before, by accident of course. So LittleManfred was broken, and Alex never let Dad forget who’d done it. Dad was always saying he’dmend him, but he never did.8. So Little Manfred had stood lopsided on the sitting-room windowsill ever since Christmas,waiting for a new wheel.(Adapted from Little Manfred by Michael Morpurgo)Page 2 of 5English – Listening Comprehension – Teacher’s Paper – Year 5 Primary – 2014

A. Reading Comprehension(20 marks)Read the following passage carefully.How Elephants Got Their TrunksA long time ago, elephants did not have trunks. They had short noses.One morning, a young elephant went for a walk. Soon, he met a parrot. ‘Whatdoes the crocodile have for dinner?’ he asked curiously.‘Go to the river and find out,’ said the parrot.The elephant walked to the river where he saw a snake on a rock. ‘Can you tellme what the crocodile has for dinner?’ he asked.‘That’s a very dangerous question,’ said the snake. ‘Go home to your family.’However, the elephant ignored the snake’s advice and walked on until he founda crocodile.‘What do you have for dinner?’ he asked.‘Come here,’ said the crocodile, ‘and I will whisper the answer.’The elephant moved closer to the crocodile. ‘I think I will have you for dinnertoday,’ said the crocodile and he caught the elephant’s nose in his mouth.‘You’re hurting me!’ the elephant said. He tried to pull his nose from thecrocodile’s mouth, but the crocodile held on tight.The snake came down from its rock. It wrapped its tailaround the elephant’s legs. The crocodile pulled andthe young elephant pulled and the snake pulled andthe elephant’s nose grew and grew.The young elephant and the snake were stronger and suddenly the crocodile letgo of the elephant and fell back into the river with a loud splash!Page 2 of 12English – Reading Comprehension, Language, and Writing – Year 5 Primary – 2014

The elephant fell backwards into the mud. He thanked the snake. ‘My nose is along trunk,’ he said. A fly landed on the elephant’s back. The elephant lifted histrunk and hit the fly with it.‘Your new nose is very useful,’ said the snake. ‘You are lucky to have a nose likethat. Now, go home to your family.’So the young elephant walked home. When he was hungry he pulled fruit downfrom a tree with his trunk and he picked grass up from the ground with histrunk. When he felt lonely he sang through his trunk, and the noise waswonderful.His family asked him, ‘Where did you get that nose?’‘The crocodile gave it to me,’ said the elephant.So, all the elephants went to the river to get newnoses from the crocodile. That is why all the elephantstoday have long, useful noses.(Adapted from The Elephant’s Child a fable by Rudyard Kipling)1.
