The time was 4:30 a.m. Looking out into the darkness, Annie remembered learning in school that most owls are active at night, when they hunt for food. During the day they sleep in hard-to-find spots. “Dad, why do you need to count owls?” she asked. “It’s important for the scientists to have current information about bird populations,” he explained. “We want to know which birds have decreased in number and whether any new kinds of birds are coming into a certain area. You and I will write down the kinds of birds that we see today and keep a record of how many times we see each kind. The we’ll send out a report to a scientific organization that is collecting about birds from people all over the county.” Dad pulled into the parking lot of the state park. Then, with flashing in hand, they began their hike into the woods. Annie zipped up her coat and tried to keep from trembling. She had not expected the morning to be so frigid. Luckily her gloves were in her pocket. Suddenly Annie’s father stooped and gestured for her to be still. Obeying, Annie did not take another step. She thought she heard a low crying up head. “That’s certainly a screech owl,” her father whispered. “Let’s get a look at it.” After looking more closely, Annie could see that it
was a small owl. Sensing danger, the owl narrowed its eyes and pulled its feathers tightly against its body. Annie carefully wrote down in her notebook that they had seen a screech owl. Walking a little farther, they came to a tall oak tree. “This looks like a perfect spot to attract owls,” Dad said. “I’m going to play a recording of common call of the barred owl. Maybe we can get one to answer.’ Annie could hardly believe her ear. The recorded all sounded as if the bird were asking, “who cooks for you?” Moments later Annie thought she heard a return call in distance. She held her breath and waited. Suddenly a huge bird landed very quietly on a branch above them. Annie had long forgotten how cold it was. She stood in wonder, shining her flashlight on the bird and studying it carefully. The barred owl was nearly tow feet tall. Gray feathers surrounded its dark eyes. The bird did not matter. Annie would never forge the image of the powerful barred owl. 56. Why did Annie and her father go to the state park? A. To take a hike in the woods. B. To record the call of barred owl. C. To collect information about birds. D. To protect the environment for wildlife. 57. The underline word “frigid” in paragraph 3 probably means . A. dark B. clear C. cold D. nice 58. In paragraph 4, why did Annie’s father stop her suddenly? A. He noticed a screech owl. B. He heard somebody crying. C. He sensed they were in danger. D. He reminded her to take down note. 59. How did Annie feel when she saw the barred owl? A. bored B. Relaxed C. Frightened D. Amazed B Warley Woods Community (社区) Trust Welcome to our third newsletter of the year! ?

The first consideration when purchasing plants is to make reasonably sure that they are suitable for the condition in which they are going to be housed. A general rule for most plans being brought indoors for the first time is to ensure that they have reasonable temperature of not less than 60 degrees Fahrenheit, a position out of cold air, safe from pets and not exposed to strong sunlight. Plants love company. When plants are growing together, they create an atmosphere of damp around themselves which is far more beneficial than hot dry conditions. A group of plants will also present a more pleasing picture and provide an opportunity for a creative arrangement. There is no secret to this. Just rely on your natural feeling for harmony. Watering and feeding plants are probably the two areas of care that are the least well understood, but, again, if you follow a few simple rules, your plants should do well. Cold Slightly warm water is therefore the answer. It is usually better to pour water on to the soil on the surface of the pot rather than put the water into the pot holder at the bottom. Avoid giving small amount of water at regular intervals- it is much better to wet the soil right through the pot in one go and then to allow it to dry noticeably before giving it a further watering. The majority of indoor plants will be in active growth from March until October, and during this time, the established ones will benefit from regular feeding. This may mean feeding with a weak liquid fertilizer(肥料) at each watering or at intervals of a week or ten days with fertilizer at a standard strength. It is important, however, to ensure that plants are not fed when growth is inactive, when the soil in the pot is dry, or too soon after the plants has been potted up. 63. In Paragraph 2, the author mainly tells us to___________.
A. but plants that help clean indoor air B. create a new environment with plants C. put plants on the sunny side of the room D. make sure of suitable conditions for plants 64. What’s the benefit of plants growing together? A. It provides owners good company. B. It helps the air around them slightly wet. C. It makes it convenient to look after them. D. It allows owners to draw a pleasant picture. 65. While watering the plants, what should we remember to do? A. Use water that is a little warm. B. Pour the water into the pot holder. C. Give small amount of water at one time. D. Consider further watering in dry weather. 66. What is the best time to feed the plants? A. When the soil is dry. B. When their growth is active. C. When the temperature is high. D. When they have just been planted. D As people have accurately observed, smiles are absent from early photographs. In 1852, for instance, a girl sat for her Daguerrotype, her head slightly turned, giving the camera an unsmiling look. She is preserved forever as a very serious girl indeed. Charles Darwin, a loving and playful parent, looks frozen in photographs. Why did our ancestors, from unknown sitters for family portraits(肖像画) to the great and famous, because so sad in front of the camera? The severity is everywhere in Victorian photographs. However, you don’t have to look very long at these unsmiling old photos to see how incomplete the seemingly obvious answer is-that they are freezing their faces in order to keep still for the long exposure times. In Julia Margaret Cameron’s Portrait of Tennyson, the poet dreams, his face a shadowed mask of genius. This is not simply a technique. It’s an emotional choice. People in the past did not go around in a continual state of sorrow. In fact, the Victorians had a sense of humor even about the darkest aspects of their society. Laughter was not just common in the past but accepted by society far more than it is today, from medieval carnivals(中 世纪狂欢节) to Georgian print shops, where people gathered to look at the latest funnies. Far from preventing festivals and fun, the Victorians, who invented photography, also created Christmas as a celebration as it is today. So the severity of people in the 19th-century photographs cannot be the evidence of generalized sadness. This was not a society in permanent desperation. Instead, the true answer has to do with attitudes to portraiture itself. People who sat for early photographs understood it as a significant moment. Sitting for the camera was cheaper, quicker and meant that people who never had a chance to be painted could now be photographed; but people seemed to have taken it seriously in the same way they would be a painted portrait. Like a portrait painting, it was intended as a timeless record of a person. To me those unsmiling people probably had as much fun as we do, if not more. But they felt no need to prove it with pictures. Instead, when whey sat for a photograph, they thought about
time, death and memory. Perhaps we should stop smiling sometimes, too. 67. What do we know about the people in Victorian times? A. They laid importance on religious events. B. They were skillful at portrait painting. C. They valued their family life. D. They enjoyed themselves. 68. The author mentions Portrait of Tennyson in Paragraph 2 to__________. A. prove a theory B. support his opinion C. introduce a painting D. describe a technique 69. The author thinks early people look frozen in old photos because____. A. they lived in a traditional society B. they had to stay still for a long time C. they regarded photography important D. they held negative views about painting 70. What is the author’s attitude towards people not smiling in old photos? A. Skeptical. B. Critical. C. Neutral. D. Positive. 第二节（共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，共 10 分） 根据短文内容， 从短文后的七个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。 According to statistics published by the University of Scranton, about 45 percent of Americans usually make New Year’s resolutions------and the most popular resolution is losing weight. Of those who make resolutions, a mere 8 percent achieve them. ___71___ Are we just setting ourselves up for failure? Learn how to make realistic resolutions and how to overcome the roadblocks along the way. Setting a resolution to lose pounds isn’t a goal that’s achievable now. It may be a good long-term goal. ___72___ Registered dietitian Elisa Zied says”… to be real when you make a resolution. It’s okay to shoot for the stars like making a resolution, but why not set a smaller goal and train smart?” The same concept applies to weight loss. ___73___ These goals should help develop healthy habits that will finally help achieve your long-term resolution. Notice that these goals are simple and achievable. “Instead of going from zero to 60, from never going to the gym to going four to five times a week, why not start with three days a week, get consistent and build from there,” Zied says. Set yourself up for success and map out your course by making appointments with yourself to be active. ___74___ You also need to be aware of your current exercise and eating habits to make achievable goals. Keeping a diary of your food and exercise habits can help. Record everything you eat and drink for three to five days and review it. ___75___For example, if you notice a tendency to snack on unhealthy fare, set a goal to eat a fruit or vegetable with each snack. Building on these smaller goals over time can help you achieve your long-term goal. A． So why do so many of us fail to achieve our goals? B． Once you notice your not-so-good habits, start fixing them. C． Set between one to three weekly goals that you want to achieve. D． Resolutions usually involve a commitment to sticking to your goals. E． However, in order to reach it, you need to take baby steps to get it down.
F． If you treat your goals like set appointment, you’re more likely to achieve them. G． Losing weight, as well as getting a better job, is among the most popular resolutions for adults. 第四部分：书面表达（共两节，35 分） 第一节（15 分） 假设你是红星中学高三学生李华，请给你的外教 Mr.Black 写一封信，邀请他参加你们年 级举行的英语读书会（reading circle）活动，邮件的内容包括： 介绍读书活动的相关信息（例如：时间、地点、活动内容等等） ； 说明你发出邀请的原因； 询问对方的意向。 注意：1. 词数不少于 50； 2. 开头和结尾已给出，不计入总词数。 Dear Mr. Black, ____________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ Yours, Li Hua 第二节（20 分） 加入你是红星中学高三学生李华。上周，你作为志愿者参与了学校接待澳大利亚中学生 访问团的活动。请根据以下四幅图的先后顺序，给校刊“英语角”写一篇英文稿件，介绍来访 学生体验中国书法的过程。
