Are you good at sport? I’m not, but I love watching and playing all kinds of sport. My favourite sport is football – the kind with the round ball, not American football. I wasn’t very good at football when I was a kid. This did not stop me playing. I played in the park with my friends for hours every day. What is your national sport? Do you like it? I love Japan’s national sport sumo. It is one of the most exciting sports in the world. You have to spend a little time getting to know the rules and the fighters. The greatest thing about sport is that it brings people together from all over the world. Another good thing is that it keeps us healthy. Sports stars are very lucky. They love their job and stay fit by doing it every day. What are you going to play next?

Transcript

Once upon a time there was a Prince who wanted to marry a Princess, but she would have to be a real Princess. He traveled all over the world to find one but nowhere could he get what he wanted. There were princesses enough but it was difficult to find out whether they were real ones. There was always something about them that was not as it should be, so he came home again and was sad for he would have liked very much to have a real princess.

One evening a terrible storm came on. There was thunder and lightning and the rain poured down in torrents. Suddenly a knocking was heard at the city gate and the old King went to open it. It was a princess standing out there in front of the gate but “good gracious!” what a sight the rain and the wind had made her look: the water ran down from her hair and clothes, it ran down into the toes of her shoes and out again at the heels, and yet she said that she was a real princess.  “Well, we’ll soon find that out!”, thought the old Queen but she said nothing, went into the bedroom, took all the bedding off the bedstead and laid a pea on the bottom, then she took 20 mattresses and laid them on the pea and then 20 eiderdown beds on top of the mattresses. On this the princess had to lie all night. In the morning she was asked how she had slept. “Oh, very badly said she, “I have scarcely closed my eyes, all night, heaven only knows, what was in the bed but I was lying on something hard so that I am black and blue all over my body. It’s horrible!”

Now they knew that she was a real princess because she had felt the pea right through the 20 mattresses and the 20 eiderdown beds. Nobody but a real princess could be as sensitive as that.         So the prince took her for his wife, for now he knew that he had a real princess and the pea was put in the museum where it may still be seen if no one has stolen it there. That is a true story.

Transcript

Hello, friends! Are you wondering what this is? Well, it’s the molten lava that comes out from a volcano. Come, let me tell you what a volcano is.

I’m sure you’ve seen mountains that open up and blurt out thick molten semi-solid like substance? Well, that’s called a volcano. Let’s learn more about it. A volcano is a vent or chimney that connects magma from within the Earth’s crust to the Earth’s surface.

The liquid rock is called magma when it is under the Earth’s surface and lava after it comes out. So how does a volcano erupt? The molten rock stored in the magma chamber rises through the crater pipe pockets. As it travels up the main vent, gasses expand and water becomes steam, creating pressure. When the pressure can no longer be contained the volcano erupts through the crater and secondary side vents. Common volcanic gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen chloride hydrogen, fluoride and hydrogen sulfide. Popular belief is that volcanoes are large cone-shaped mountains but that’s not true. There are many more types of volcanoes such as wide plateaus, fissure vents and bulging dome shapes. There are also volcanoes found on the ocean floor and even under ice caps such as those found in Iceland.

The word volcano originally comes from the name of the Roman god of fire Vulcan. The tallest volcano in the solar system isn’t on Earth at all but on Mars.

Level of thinking skills Knowledge and comprehension

Task. Read the text about volcanoes. Answer the questions.

 

A volcano is a mountain where molten rock erupts through the surface.

The name «volcano» has its origin from the name of Vulcan, a god of fire in Roman mythology.

Magma is a liquid rock inside a volcano.

Lava is liquid rock (magma) that flows out of a volcano. There are around 1,510 active volcanoes in the world. We currently know of 80 or more, which are under the oceans.

When magma erupts through the earth’s surface it is called “lava”.

Over half of the world’s volcanoes arise in a belt around the Pacific Ocean called the “Ring of Fire”.

 

Use joined-up handwriting to write answers.

1.    What word has its origin from the name of a god of fire in Roman mythology?

Teacher can read the transcript:

There are aliens out there, somewhere. I strongly believe this. Not sure what they look like, though. I really doubt they are green, like they are in science fiction movies. I also don’t think they look like us. But I’m sure they exist. I just don’t think we’ll ever see any or find any. They live too far away. If you think about it logically, there has to be aliens out there. All a planet needs is to be warm and have water and life will exist. There are billions and billions of planets in the universe, so there are probably millions and millions that have life. Alien life. It’s also likely that some of the aliens are much more intelligent than we are. I wonder what we’d do if really intelligent aliens visited the Earth. What would we ask them?
