Story by Kim Ashmore and Sue Clarke | Animation by Cambridge English Online


Some children in Turkey loved the story of 'Our colourful world' and they drew pictures of their 'Friend from outer space'. Have a look at the online exhibition here.

There are also some great videos of their pictures which a Turkish TV company made. Have a look and let us know what you think. They're fantastic, aren't they?

  • There is only one home.
  • It named Earth.
  • I love our colorful Earth.

Oh!I have read this story before. My English teacher asked us to read last winter vacation. I like our Earth.

well apart of it that is just a narative it is not really a real story

I love our planet!!

billy and splodge saw an orange planet.the weather was windy. the sky was orange and the river and the moon and stars everything in that planet was orange. and there were big orange mountains.there weren't any people live there.

 Okay. Ths is my imaginary planet:

  • Mostly the colour is purple. Alhtough there is things that are not purple! 
  • There are wonderful plants, but also poisoness ones! There is tall trees that give oxygen, without the oxygen you wouldn't survive on that planet! The planet is known for MANY MANY animals there! 
  • I Called the planet Megus. (READ: Megoos)

 My favourite planet is Venus. Did you know that the atmosphere (oxygen) there is poisoness! Nobody can live there but my parents say that when I grow up they'll buy me that planet! (They are very rich!

I  like  pink  colour

and me too

My favourite colour is blue.
