his first flight class 10 th worksheet

Set - 1

The young seagull was alone on his ledge. His two  brothers and his sister had already flown away the day before. He had been afraid to fly with them.
Somehow when he had taken a little  run forward  to the brink of the ledge and attempted to flap his wings he became afraid. The great expanse of sea stretched down beneath, and it was such a long way  down  – miles down. He felt  certain  that  his  wings would never support him; so he bent his head and ran away back to the little hole under the  ledge  where he  slept at night. Even when each of his brothers and his little sister, whose wings were far shorter than his own, ran to the brink, flapped their wings, and flew away, he failed to muster up  courage to  take  that plunge  which  appeared to him so desperate. His father and mother had come around calling to him  shrilly, upbraiding him, threatening to let him starve on his ledge unless he flew away. But for the life of him he could not move.

Set - 2

That was twenty-four hours ago. Since then nobody had come near him. The day before, all day long, he had watched his parents flying about with his brothers and sister, perfecting them in the art of flight, teaching them how to skim the waves and how to dive for fish. He had, in fact, seen his older brother catch his first herring and devour it, standing on a rock, while his parents circled around raising a proud cackle. And all the morning the whole family had walked about on the big plateau midway down the opposite cliff taunting him for his cowardice. The sun was now ascending the sky, blazing on his ledge that faced the south. He felt the heat because he had not eaten since  the previous nightfall. He stepped slowly out to the brink of the ledge, and standing on one leg with the other leg hidden under his wing; he closed one eye, then the other, and pretended to be falling asleep. Still they took no notice of him. He saw his two brothers and his sister lying on the plateau dozing with their heads sunk into their necks.  His father was preening the feathers on his  white  back. Only  his  mother was looking  at him. She was standing on a little high hump on the plateau, her white breast thrust forward. Now and again, she tore at a piece of fish  that  lay  at  her  feet  and then scrapped each side of her beak on the rock. The sight of the food maddened him. How he loved to tear food that way, scrapping his beak now and again to whet it.
