Please find the Week 6 reading comprehensions with answer guidance.
This week, I received some great examples of the amazing things children in Year 6 are doing at home. Sophie created an informative e-safety poster following the e-safety blog, whilst Luca wrote an interesting report relating to improving the healthcare system following the outbreak of the virus. Thank you both for your lovely work!
Reasonable People: Co-opting Private Services for Public Gain Our current system is struggling more and more every day, none more so than our healthcare system. This brings me onto my point which is this: what if we had an ambulance service that could reach anywhere at any time and save money and this can be achieved through the human instinct to have more and using what we have differently. This mainly exists in people who already have too much and many wealthy CEOs would leap at a chance to earn more. So what if we somehow managed to persuade private companies to invest in their own ambulances and paramedics, who could be deployed from the company nearest to the accident and in exchange get government (a high value investor) funding. It might lead to more doctors in hospitals, increasing the patient intake needed in the height of the coronavirus outbreak. These companies also have the money and time to research more innovative tech, a good place to put their money for public good. And I understand concerns about how much power this places on individuals but imagine what an atrocity it would be for the company’s reputation if it went wrong, and a loss of official funding would be detrimental, and also it could even expand advertising for almost nothing where as an advert on prime time can cost 100s of pounds. I appreciate you reading this. Kind regards, Luca
