Planet Earth is one of the eight planets in our solar system. It circles around the Sun together with other planets too. It takes the Earth 365 1/4 days to go around the Sun.
Planet Earth is a unique planet as it is the only planet that is full of life. Other planets are too hot or cold and have extreme weathers such as too windy or too icy. The Earth is just right for people as it has everything a human needs such as water, oxygen and the weather is perfect for us. It also has an atmosphere that protects living things on Earth from harmful radiation from the sun.
The water cycle is a way in which water moves around the world.Without it, nothing would grow and humans wouldn’t be able to live, the world’s water is never used up.
> The sun heats up the sea water, that makes it as water vapour.
> Vapour rises in the atmosphere, then down as rain.
> The rain falls back to the sea, then water vapour comes up and forms into clouds, water collects in rivers and goes back to the sea.
The continuous movement of water on, above and below the surface of the Earth.
Below shows how The Water Cycle works:

We have a skeleton on the inside of your body. Without the skeleton our body would be as floppy as jelly. There are over 200 bones in our body, bones are very tough and light. They are made from calcium and collagen.
The skeleton does three jobs:
1. To protect our body for example skull protects our brain, ribs protects our organs such as hearts and lungs, backbones protects our spinal nerves.
2. To support our body, it lets us stand upright.
3. To help us move, muscles are joined to the bones it controls the way the bones move.
