Penguins live in the southern ocean.Penguins are birds,  they don’t live in the north they live around the world in south.

Penguins can’t fly. They take waddling steps when they come ashore.

Antarctic Seals

WALT- We are learning to summarise the main points a paragraph

The seals can swim fast. They are like a bullet going around antarctica. They are fat                          
Crabeater seals they eat krill. There are 30 million of them and they are the most common.

Leopard seals hunt penguins but they can't move on land. The penguins are not afraid  when they are on land. They are better underwater. Weddell seals spend most of their time in the cold but they are warm in the cold.
