We find that bright children are rarely held back by mixed-ability teaching. On the contrary, both their knowledge and experience are enriched. We feel that there are many disadvantages in streaming pupils. It does not take into account the fact that children develop at different rates. It can have a bad effect on both the bright and the not-so-bright child. After all, it can be quite discouraging to be at the bottom of the top grade!
Besides, it is rather unreal to grade people just according to their intellectual ability. This is only one aspect of their total personality. We are concerned to develop the abilities of all our pupils to the full, not just their academic ability. We also value personal qualities and social skills, and we find that mixed-ability teaching contributes to all these aspects of learning.
In our classrooms, we work in various ways. The pupils often work in groups: this gives them the opportunity to learn to co-operate, to share, and to develop leadership skills. They also learn how to cope with personal problems as well as learning how to think, to make decisions, to analyze and evaluate, and to communicate effectively. The pupils learn from each other as well as from the teachers.
Sometimes the pupils work in pairs; sometimes they work on individual tasks and assignments, and they can do this at their own speed. They also have some formal class teaching when this is appropriate. We encourage our pupils to use the library, and we teach them the skills they need in order to do this effectively. An advanced pupil can do advanced work; it does not matter what age the child is. We expect our pupils to do their best, not their least, and we give them every encouragement to attain this goal.

PART VI: Read the passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the following questions from 61 to 65.
The forest from which Man takes his timber is the tallest and most impressive plant community on Earth. In terms of Man’s brief life, it appears permanent and unchanging, save for the season growth and fall of the leaves, but to the forester, it represents the climax of a long succession of events.
No wooded landscape we see today has been forest for all time. Plants have minimum requirements of temperature and moisture and, in ages past, virtually every part of Earth’s surface has, at some time, been either too dry or too cool for plants to survive.
However, as soon as climatic conditions change in favour of plant life, a fascinating sequence of changes, called a primary succession, occurs first to colonize the barren land and the lichen surviving on bare rock. Slowly, the acids produced by these organisms crack the rock’s surface, plants debris accumulate and mosses establish shallow root-holes. Ferns may allow and, with short grasses and shrubs, gradually form a covering of plant life. Roots broke even deeper into the developing soil and eventually large shrubs give way to the first trees. These grow rapidly, cutting off sunlight from the smaller plants, and soon establish complete domination – closing their ranks and forming a climax community which may endure for thousands of years. Yet even this community is not everlasting. Fire may destroy it outright and settlers may cut it down to gain land for pasture or cultivations. If the land is then abandoned, a secondary succession will take over, developing much faster on the more hospitable soil. Shrubs and trees are among the early invaders, their seeds carried by the wind, by birds and lodged in the coat of mammals.
For as long as it stands and strives, the forest is a vast machine storing energy and the many elements essential for life.
Question 61: Why do we tend to think the forest as permanent?
A. Because our lives are comparatively short. B. Because it is an essential part of our life.
C. Because the trees are so tall. D. Because it is renewed each season.
Question 62: What has sometimes caused plants to die out in the past?
A. Interference from the foresters. B. The absence of wooded land.
C. The introduction of new types of plants. D. Variations in climate.
Question 63: In a “primary succession”, what makes it possible for mosses to take root?
A. The type of rock. B. The amount of moisture.
C. The effect of lichens. D. The amount of sunlight.
Question 64: What conditions are needed for shrubs to become established?
A. More soil must accumulate. B. Ferns must take root.
C. The ground must be covered with grass. D. Smaller plants must die now.
Question 65: Why is a “secondary succession” quicker?
A. Birds and animals bring new seeds. B. It is supported by the forest
C. There’s more space for fewer plants. D. The ground is more suitable.
