The sun

ImageThe Sun or Sol, is the star at the centre of our solar system and is responsible for the Earth’s climate and weather. The Sun is an almost perfect sphere with a difference of just 10km in diameter between the poles and the equator. The average radius of the Sun is 695,508 km of which 20–25% is the core.

Facts About The Sun

One million Earths could fit inside the Sun:
If a hollow Sun was filled up with spherical Earths then around 960,000 would fit inside. On the other hand if these Earths were squished inside with no wasted space then around 1,300,000 would fit inside. The Suns surface area is 11,990 times that of the Earth’s.

Eventually, the Sun will consume the Earth:
When all the Hydrogen has been burned, the Sun will continue for about 130 million more years, burning Helium, during which time it will expand to the point that it will engulf Mercury and Venus and the Earth. At this stage it will have become a red giant

The Sun will one day be about the size of Earth:
After its red giant phase, the Sun will collapse, retaining its enormous mass, but containing the approximate volume of our planet. When this happens, it will be called a white dwarf.

The Sun contains 99.86% of the mass in the Solar System:
The mass of the Sun is approximately 330,000 times greater than that of Earth. It is almost three quarters Hydrogen, whilst most of the remaining mass is Helium.

Try say this

Betty Botter bought some butter,
“But,” she said, “this butter’s bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
It will make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter –
That would make my batter better.”
So she bought a bit of butter,
Better than her bitter butter,
And she baked it in her batter,
And the batter was not bitter.
So it was better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter

The tuck shop

Why the tuck shop should sell healthy and unhealthy food?

This is a message to the tuck shop ladies that you should sell a balance of healthy and unhealthy food. I am writing this to persuade you to sell both types of food, healthy and unhealthy. If you start doing this then it will be fair to you and especially the children. Would you like to see happy kids roaming around your school?

Firstly, selling a mix of unhealthy and healthy food will increase the population of children at the canteen. While some children order pies, garlic breads, pizzas, other children want wholesome food such as sandwiches and salads. Having a very big amount of children at the tuck shop will also mean that you get more money which will lead to a very big profit.

Secondly, selling healthy and unhealthy food will be a delightful treat to kids knowing that children love yum unwholesome food and parents want kids to have at least something healthy. When you really love a type of game or toy, thats all you want to get but parents may force you to get something educational.

Finally, selling healthy and unhealthy food will keep the kids fit and happy. When the kids are happy then teachers and parents are pleased. When they are fit then that shows that they are really working hard in all ways. Would you like to be happy and fit at the same time?

In conclusion, I strongly believe that selling healthy and unhealthy will be a very good and thankful choice for the kids because you will get more kids coming to the canteen, it will be a treat to all the children and it will keep the kids fit and happy. Do you think this.
