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.

Kangaroos are unique animals because of the pouch on their tummy. This means the mother kangaroo can carry her baby in a pouch on her tummy.
Kangaroos have huge back legs and big feet. They move by hopping around on their strong back legs. They have a long thick tail to help them balance when they hop and to support them when they sit or walk.
Kangaroos live in the wild only in Australia, New guinea and nearby island. In Australia the word kangaroo is often shortened to just roo.
Male kangaroos are called bucks, boomers, jacks, or old men.
The females are called does, flyers, or jills.
A baby kangaroo is called a joey.
Kangaroos live together in groups called mobs.
There can be up to 100 kangaroos in a mob.
I really like rainbows, because of the pretty colours. There are seven colours in a rainbow, they are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
Do you know how a rainbow is formed?
When it rains and it’s sunny at the same time you will see a rainbow form. It happens because the beams of the sunlight separate into colours when it enters the water from the rain. Sunlight is actually made from different colours but we can’t see them as they appear to be white when it reaches the earth. And water can separate the colours, that is why the rainbow is formed when it rains and sunny. Continue reading
