Some good stuff here. A few criticisms, though - as noted by artemishunter111 below, the ear bones (the delightfully-named ossicles) are in the middle ear, not the inner ear. That's pretty important when we're teaching about the anatomy of our ears, I think? 'Some common sounds are ___' is intriguingly open to interpretation. Are... loud? Are... squawking and talking? 'Sound waves are vibrating ___' looks like it's looking for the answer 'air', but we've just been talking about how sound can also travel through liquids and solids. I'd be fascinated to know what kind of answers Year 8 kids come up with for 'Why does the ear pick up sound waves instead of light waves?'

Not 100% sure, but aren't the ear bones in the middle ear? It says they are in the inner ear here...
