An octopus is a creature which lives in the sea. It has a round head with two large eyes. People often think that octopuses have eight legs, but they have four pairs of arms. Octopuses live in oceans all the world. Octopuses that live in warm water are small, and that live in cold water are much . Most octopuses are "nocturnal". This means that they sleep day, and move around and eat at night. Octopuses usually live one or two years.

To move, octopuses usually use their arms to walk the bottom of the sea. When they need to, they can swim at forty kilometers an hour for a short time. an octopus needs to hide from creatures, it can change colour. It can also get into very small spaces because its body is very soft.

Octopuses are very clever. For example, they can new things and open bottles. Octopuses can see very well with their large eyes, but they can't hear anything.

What a clever dog! 

Last Saturday, Harry and his sister Emma went for a walk up a mountain near their house because it was a beautiful sunny day. They took their dog, Jack, with them. On the way up, they sang songs together and they were very happy.

At the top of the mountain, they ate their picnic, which was sandwiches, cake and lemonade. After lunch, they decided to go home. As they were walking down the mountain, Emma fell over and hurt her foot. She couldn't walk any more.

"Oh dear," she said. "What are we going to do?"

Harry said, "Don't worry, Emma. Jack's a clever dog and he can go for help."

Harry turned to Jack, pointed down the mountain and said loudly, "Jack, go home, go home and get help."

Jack looked at Harry and then he looked at Emma. Then he suddenly understood and he ran down the mountain as fast as he could. Harry stayed with Emma and held her hand. After two hours, it began to get dark and the children were very afraid. Then they heard the sound of people talking and saw torch lights coming up the mountain.

Emma cried, "Dad, it's you!"

Dad said, "I'm so happy to see you both. When Jack came back without you, we knew something was wrong. What a brave dog!" Dad picked Emma up and carried her down the hill. When they got home, everyone was very tired but happy.
