A high school in England has found a new solution to allow students to sleep longer in the morning. The ＄25, 000-a-year Hampton Court House School is starting a 1:30 to 7 :00 pm timetable in September. It will become the only school in Britain that starts lessons in the afternoon. Head teacher Guy Holloway said the changed hours should help students get higher grades. He said research on human brains shows students can do better if they can sleep longer in the morning. Mr. Holloway said: "We want to get students into an environment where they can get quality sleep and their bodies are working well in correct ways." He added: “It's about what works in our neighborhood.”
The aftermoon start is supported by research by Oxford University. Researcher Dr. Paul Kelley said:“You can’t train yourselves to get up at a practical time.”He said we are not in control of choosing the best time to work because it's biological(生物钟)—our nature, just like we have no control over our heartbeat or how our ears do their work. Dr. Kelley added:“Anything you do to change the timing of your body means different parts of your body will not be able to work together at the same time to keep you going and this is where people get ill…. It is no fixing it by giving someone an alarm clock.”A student at the school，Gabriel Purcell-Davis, 15，is in support of the idea. He said students are tired all day now，“…as soon as 10 o'clock hits，that's when we ...do all our work”.
46. In what way will the school be different from other schools in Britain?
A. It will have more students than any other school.
B. It will ask for more money from the students.
C. It will begin a school day in the afternoon.
D. It will have fewer lessons in September.
47. The school takes this new move to______.
A. let the students sleep longer in the morning
B. encourage the students to have lessons at home

D. give the students more chance to work after school
48. Mr. Holloway believes that the students can do better by_______.
A. spending less time at school B. working together with parents C. having a good rest in the morning D. going home earlier in the afternoon
49. Dr. Kelley is trying to tell us that_____.
A. we’d better follow our nature to decide when to work
B. people can get ill by getting up early in the morning
C. mornings are the worst time for students to have lessons
D. the alarm clock is a good invention to keep students at work
50. In the end，Cabriel Purcell-Davis is mentioned to show that______.

Almost two-thirds of children want their parents to spend more time reading to them before bed. Most of theses kids like Mum's storytelling more than Dad's，researchers said.
They carried out a study that showed younger children aged 3-4 were most hungry for more stories. Over three-quarters of them said they wished their parents to read to them more often.

They can use funny voices to show different characters in a story. They can also make their own special sounds to keep the story interesting and attractive. When mum and dad story from famous people like Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe. Other movie stars like Zac Efron, Miley Cyrus and Emma Watson also welcomed by children.
“It can be very difficult for parents to find the time to read with their children. But these moments can help build close relationship between parents and children, and also can play an important part in their child's development," said Woolfson.

Rosalia Mera，the world’s richest self-made woman has died at the age of 69 in August，2013. She started as a poor Spanish seamstress(a woman clothes maker), and later founded the well-known fashion retailer(零售商)Zara. Mera was the richest woman in Spain with a worth of S 6，100,000，000. Mera was seriously ill while on holiday and died in a hospital in the town where she was born，La Coruna in northern Spain.
Having left school at 11 years old，Mera worked as a seamstress as a teenager before setting up a company, which would grow into one of the biggest clothes retailers in the world. Today the brand (品牌) name sits above 1,763 Zara stores around the world.
The Zara model grew up from the idea that first sent Mera into business: producing speedy and cheap imitations(仿制品). Mera was one of the first players in the field of so-called “fast fashion”. Though she was extremely rich, Mera stayed close to home and was often seen talking with friends and neighbors in Galicia's bars.
The world’s richest self-made woman
