Watch out for the Sharks!

We’ve been finding out lots about these two lovely creatures and now it’s your chance to show me what you can remember! Take a look at the pictures and see if you can tell me the name of the shark and one interesting thing we learned about it (try to read what other people have written and try not to repeat any ideas). Can’t wait to see what you remember!

    Hammer haed shark. It eats members of his fammely.
    Eyes at the side of its head so it can see up, down, front amd back and side to side.
    Megamouth shark. It has glowing rubbery lips to attract other animals and then it gobbles them up. Its mouth is 1 metre long and the megamouth shark is 5 metres long.
    (Sam managed to type the first sentence and then mum resumed secretarial duties!)

    The first one is a hammerhead shark. It uses its head to push down stingrays.
    The second is a megamouth, it’s blue and is 5m long (a hammerhead is 6m). The megamouths lips glow in the dark to attract other animals for its supper!
    (Wow, hard not to give the same facts!)
    Happy weekend!

    Hammerhead Shark – Fin has said the same as Freddie and Sam. Only thing to add is that once they have the string ray under it’s hammer then it bites off their wings so they can’t swim away!
    Megamouth Shark – again same as above nearly word for word.
    (Mum – I never knew a Megamouth was a type of shark – I’m getting educated by the P1 homework)

    Hammerhead Shark – same about the eyes as Sam and eating the wings like Fin.

    Megamouth Shark – again the same fact but Carlin also said they can swim deeper than Orcas so they can’t eat them and they eat plankton.

      Brilliant answers Carlin! Give yourself a house point tomorrow! Do you remember what kind of water the megamouth likes to swim in – cold or warm water?

    The first shark is a hammer head shark. He can see behind himself because of where his eyes are. The second one is a megamouth shark and is 5 metres long – the size of 3 children according to Jack?! He lives in the Pacific Ocean.

    Ally says megamouth sharks have over 10,000 teeth. Hammerhead sharks can look up, below and both sides to see where their prey is. A hammerhead shark knocks its prey down to the ground because its head is shaped like a hammer – then it can eat them!

    Rebekka says the first one is a hammer head shark. He has eyes on both sides and can look backwards, it eats stinging creatures by biting their wings off.
    She doesn’t know the name of the other one but that one has glowing lips which tricks animals, these animals get closer and closer and the shark gobbles them up.

    Lucas says the first one is a hammer head shark and has eyes at the end of its head! It hunts down its family to eat them! He says it is 6 metres long. He forgot the name of the second one but says it has rubbery lips and is 5 metres long.

    The first is a hammerhead shark. It uses its head to hammer things apparently!

    The second has thousands of big teeth but he can’t remember the name.

    Liky-Grace said – Hammerhead shark, their eyes are 5metres apart and on the sides so they don’t need to turn around to see the other fish around them.
    and Megamouth shark with rubbery glowing lips that attract other fish…. then she did a huge snap action with her arms.

      Super thinking Lily-Grace! The hammerhead is 5 metres long and its eyes are 1 metre apart and you’re right, they are able to see all around them. Another house point for you tomorrow!

    Annie told me all about how hammerhead sharks can see in all directions. She also told me that sharks sink if they stop swimming….and lots of other interesting things about sea creatures such as that dolphins sleep using half their brains at a time!
