Year 5 Test 5 is for the students of the fifth grade to check themselves and develop their reading and writing skills.

Rebecca Stevens was the first woman to get to the top of Mount Everest. Before that she was a journalist and lived in a small flat in south London. In 1993, Rebecca left her job and travelled to Asia with some friends. She says that life on Everest is hard “You must carry everything in your bag, so you can take only what you need. You can’t wash on the mountain, because there is no water, only snow.”
