In those days he was a young-looking man. He did not hesitate to make friends with children as soon as they were able to talk to him and laugh at his stories. Mother was older than he was. She must have been a woman of nearly forty, but she seemed even older. She changed little for a long time, showing no indication of growing old at all until, towards the end of her life, she suddenly became an old lady. I was always inquisitive about Mother’s age. She never had birthdays like other people, nor did anyone else in our family. No candles were ever lit or cakes made or presents given in our house. To my friends in the street who talked delightfully about their birthday parties, I would repeat my mother’s words that such celebrations were only foolish. ―Nothing but deception,‖ she would say. ―Life is not necessarily marked by birthdays. It’s deeds, not years, that matter.‖ Although I often repeated her words and even prided myself on not having birthdays, I once could not help asking Mother when she was born. ―I was born. I’m alive as you can see, so what more do you want to know?‖ she replied, so sharply that I never asked her about her age again. In so many other ways Mother was different. Whereas all the rest of the women I knew in the neighbouring houses took pride in their housewifely abilities, their new furniture, the neat appearance of their homes, Mother regarded all those things as of little importance. Our house always looked as if we had just moved in or were about to move out. 21. How did Father impress the author? A. He liked writing stories. B. He loved making friends. C. He was a very young man. D. He was popular with children. 22. What do we learn about Mother? A. She was lazy. B. She was strict. C. She was special D. She was proud. 23. What does the word ―inquisitive‖ in Paragraph 2 probably mean? A. Certain B. Curious.
D. Confident. B If the last blog didn’t give you enough ideas on how to entertain the family over the summer holidays, we have a few more great activities for you! Get gardening Start up a summer project in the garden and plant some seeds with the children! Cucumbers, peppers, beans and tomatoes are perfect vegetables to plant in your garden, and a sunflower would be a lovely addition to watch grow throughout summer. Visit a local farm or zoo Local farms are a brilliant way to expose children to different types of animals, see them up close and sometimes even feed them! A trip to the zoo will probably cost a bit more, but usually have more animals for children to see and learn about. Obstacle (障碍) course Children love the thrill of a sports day at school; but there is no reason why you can’t recreate that at home! Set up a mini obstacle course suitable for your children’s ages, and let the family sports day begin! Have a treasure hunt A treatment hunt around the house, garden, or local park will be a great way to drop in some presents for the children for their good behavior over the summer holidays --- and who doesn’t love a treasure hunt? Get creative with the theme of the treasure hunt; Pirate, Graffiti, or a Bear Hunt we think will go down a storm! Let us know what you are planning for your summer holiday activities through our social media pages! Candy Floss hopes you all stay safe this summer --- and have a fantastic time! 24. Who is the passage mainly intended for? A. Internet workers. B. Teachers. C. Parents. D. Teenager 25. What can children do when visiting a farm or zoo? A. See different kinks of animals. B. Watch sunflowers grow. C. Plant some vegetables. D. Hunt bears. 26. Which activity entertains those who are interested in sports? A. Getting gardening. B. Taking an obstacle course. C. Having a treasure hunt. D. Visiting a local farm or zoo. 27. Why should children be given presents in a treasure hunt? A. To show the parents’ creative thinking. B. To encourage them to find more treasure. C. To praise them for their behavior in holiday. D. To honor them for gaining high marks in the exam. C It’s cold and dark outside， and your bed is so warm and comfortable. Going for a run seems like such a bad idea. But before you hide your running shoes， it might be worth giving that crazy idea a go. According to The Huffington Post，an outdoor run in winter, as opposed to one on a treadmill(跑 步机)， bums more calories because the body is working hard to regulate(调节)its core temperature. Furthermore, research shows that race times are faster in cold weather than in warmer temperatures-and quicker runs burn more calories. Similarly，cold weather also makes the heart work harder to distribute blood through the body，making that vital muscle even stronger. Outdoor exercise also turns up your energy and rids you of the stress and depression that build up every day. The heat and humidity in the summer can drag you down and tire you faster, but cold weather is refreshing. It adjusts you to your surroundings，making you feel alive. Of course，the threat of smog in some built-up areas is a further hurdle to winter exercise. Heart attacks stroke, lung cancer and asthma are all dangers of running in smog. The combination of air pollution and exercise increases the potential problems. If you do choose to run outside on smoggy days, take a path in a park or residential area to avoid car exhaust(尾气) and go early in the morning，before rush hour. But staying inside on smoggy days and waiting for the next clear day to run is best.
28. How does cold weather benefit runners compared with warm weather? A. They can run more slowly. B. They can take in more calories. C. Their hearts can function harder. D. Their body temperature can get lower. 29. How does summer affect runners? A. It builds up their energy quickly. B. It makes runners tired easily. C. It lessens runners' stress. D. It causes heart attack. 30. What are the runners supposed to do on smoggy days? A. Stop driving cars. B. Do more exercise. C. Avoid outdoor exercise. D. Run late in the morning. 31.What can be the best title of the text? A. Refresh with a Winter Run B. Take Outdoor Exercise in Summer C. Go to Run in a Park D. Follow the Tips to Reduce Stress D A Good Night?s Sleep Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. While you?re sleeping, your brain is forming new pathways to help you learn and remember information. Although we all know the importance of getting a good night?s sleep, not all of us know the best way of getting it. A sleep expert, Phil Atherton, gave some top tips for getting the most out of the night, which will leave you ready for action in the morning. According to Phil Atherton, not eating a large meal before bedtime is important for getting a good night?s sleep. The time difference between eating and sleeping should be at least three hours. So you?d better avoid eating any food three hours before bed, as it will lower your blood sugar during sleep and help minimize damage from too much sugar floating around. It?s also important to find ways to prepare your body for sleep. You can follow a routine like trying not to expose yourself to too much artificial light within 1 hour before bed, as your brain uses light to help set internal "body clock". Although it might seem unnatural to schedule your sleep, the purpose is to send a signal to your body and mind that it?s time to sleep. Another way to prepare your body for sleep is to get into a relaxed state by taking a bath or listening to soft music. Both of them will help to take the mind off the daytime pressures. Having a suitable bed, especially a suitable mattress (床垫), is necessary for a good night?s sleep. Sleep is a personalized activity, and we all adopt different sleeping positions. Finding the mattress that suits you will reduce back pains that can result from a poor sleeping position. The bed should be four to six inches longer than its tallest user, allowing for space to move around. The recent research is pretty clear that a good night?s sleep is a major component of good health. Since the start of the 21st century, studies have linked a lack of sleep to many diseases, such as diabetes and obesity. Taking action now will lead to long-term benefits for you and those around you. 32.What does the author intend to tell us in the passage? A. When to start a sound sleep. B. How to get a good night?s sleep. C. What to do with sleep problems. D. Why to form a good habit of sleeping. 33. According to the author, before going to sleep, you?d better __________. A. free yourself from tension B. check your blood sugar C. relieve your pain in the back D. record your biological clock 34.What does the underlined word "it" in Paragraph 2 refer to? A. Not eating food. B. Taking a meal. C. Not sleeping well. D. Having a good sleep. 35.Which of the following shows the organization of the passage?
C. D. 第二节 (共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分) 根据短文内容， 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项， 选项中有两项为多余选项。 Dealing with Someone Who Blames You for Everything It’s no fun being on the receiving end of constant accusations. Being blamed for things not your fault or not your intention can create feelings of anger. 36 To prevent that happening, it’s best for you to deal with the situation in a mature and positive way. 37 Putting yourself in the other person’s shoes may help you find out the problem. He may be placing blame on you because he wants to reduce any hard feelings on himself by making you responsible instead. 38. In that case, the blamer will know that you value yourself and believe that you deserve respect. In asking for the respect you deserve, be confident but not aggressive, so you can keep some peace in the relationship. Focus on what he’s really saying, not how he’s saying it. He may have a point about something you need to take responsibility for. 39 If you want to save the relationship, try to be the bigger person, ignore his negative attitude and focus on what he is really saying. Take full responsibility for your own feelings and know that you aren’t responsible for how others feel. 40 If the blamer accuses you of making him sad, angry or upset, remember that you aren’t responsible for his feelings, especially if you feel you haven’t intended to hurt him. A. Stand up for yourself to gain respect. B. Tell the blamer you care little about his words. C. You can only be in control of your own feelings. D. However, he may be delivering it in a negative way. E. It may even lead to the break-up of your relationship. F. Try to understand what causes this person to blame you. 第三部分英语知识运用 (共两节，满分 45 分) 第一节完形填空 (共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分) 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项 (A、B、C 和 D)中选出可以填入空白处的最 佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 Whether it’s Freshers’ Week or exams week, a university nightline service can be a lifesaver(救星).

But it always feels good to know a(n) 54 is really making a difference to someone. The majority of calls I answered were from students who were either homesick or just wanting 55 walking home alone. Since nightlines rely on their secrecy, 56 must remain anonymous(匿名), 57 as few friends as possible about their role. As such, it can sometimes feel like 58 work. But Tessa,19, who has done night shifts totaling 250 hours, best sums up why we do it: ― When callers 59 the conversation saying they feel a little better, it makes all the waking up in the middle of the night and the 60 of social activities with friends seem worthwhile.‖ 41.
