Both sections require you to respond to the following scenario based on reading development: Riley and Mia, both Year 1 students, are presented with the same text extract to read and comprehend. Here is the text extract: One hot sunny day Wombat and Echidna went to the seaside. Wombat lay on the sand, sunbathing. But Echidna was bored and restless. “If we had a boat,” said Echidna, “we could sail away to sea and have an adventure. We could be explorers!” Echidna was always looking for adventure. Wombat wasn’t. So Wombat was not very happy when a little boat came drifting towards them. But it cheered Echidna up. “This must be our lucky day,” he said. “Come on, Wombat.” “I’ve never been in a boat,” said Wombat. The two friends climbed in and Echidna pulled hard on the oars.
