Reception are enjoying their underwater topic. This week we learnt some facts about sharks. Did you know...
Sharks do not have a single bone in their bodies. Instead they have a skeleton made up of cartilage.
Sharks have outstanding hearing. They can hear a fish thrashing in the water from as far as 500 metres away!
A pup (baby shark) is born ready to take care of itself. The mother shark leaves the pup to fend for itself and the pup usually makes a fast get away before the mother tries to eat it!
