Zebras - Year 2

Hello Zebras

We hope you all enjoyed your Half Term Holiday.

I wonder if you did any of the '5 Fun Things' activities during the week?

Scroll down to find all your learning for this week.




Keep in touch, keep safe and keep smiling

Miss Pignon, Miss Peats, Miss Whincop and Mrs Keable 



Did you know?

Our new zebras - Max, Parsley, Fennel and Sage - have an interesting fact about themselves to share with you . . . 

You know that zebras live in Africa, but did you know that there are actually 3 different types of zebra?

We are Chapman's zebras.  We live in family groups called 'herds'.  In our herd, Max is the male stallion - he's in charge.  Parsley is a young male and Fennel and Sage are females.

I expect you know that zebras are found all over Africa but did you know where Chapman's Zebras come from?  We are found in southern Africa.  You can spot us in Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Botswana.  Can you see our homes on the map?



Welcome back!

Hello from Miss Whincop

Ziggy's Adventures

Ziggy's Adventures                                      Monday 1st June 2020


The other day, Miss Whincop said it would be nice if we went on a picnic.  That was exciting!  While we got ready (we had to put some sunscreen on to look after our skin) Miss Whincop went and got some lunch for us.  She got us some crisps, a roll with a filling, an apple and a drink.  She got it all prepared with a plate, bowl and a cup.  She took them outside and we followed behind her. She laid a rug onto the grass and then placed the cutlery down.  She asked us to get ready (we had already washed our hands) so we took our places on the rug. 


The roll was yummy and between us it was gone in a  matter of mouthfuls!   It was a hot day so Miss Whincop poured our drinks for us, and we slurp slurp slurped it all.  The crisps were very cheesy and they really didn't last long either!  Then it was the apple and that was crunchy crunchy crunch.   After we had eaten, we took our time chilling out on the rug in the sun. 


It was a lovely day.
