Over the next few weeks we will be writing a non-chronological report on sharks around the world.

Here is a website which is a great starting point to help your childs writing.

Once they have picked the shark they will write a report on they can do further research. Try and encourage your child to use technical vocabulary to support their writing.

At the end of the unit I will take pictures of childrens work, so stay tuned......

One of my favourite sharks is the mysterious and strange looking Hammerhead shark. Below is a great video showing lots of useful information you could include in your report.

Jonathan Bird's Blue World: Hammerhead Sharks

Of all the animals in the oceans, the hammerhead shark may be one of the strangest looking. The exact purpose of the wide, flat head is a mystery, but several theories abound. We travel to the shark-infested waters of the Galapagos in Ecuador to learn about the unusual habits of these sinister-looking sharks.
