Flying from the sun to the stars

Practise the names of planets with this song about the solar system.


Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the song and do the activities.

Song and lyrics © Andy Henley/Tym King; Animation by Cambridge English Online


In English you can say 'My Very Eager Mother Just Sat Upon Nine Pins' to help you remember the planets. Is there a phrase like this in your language? Can you invent a new English one?
