Did you know?


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?




Female zebras are usually pregnant for nearly 13 months - that's over a year!  They usually only have one baby at a time.  Baby zebras start eating grass when they're only a few days old, but they also enjoy their mum's milk until they're 7-11 months old.

What are we learning about this term?

We are looking forward to an exciting Summer term and here is an overview of our learning.


English homework will be sent out on a Friday with a spelling test the following Thursday. Maths homework will be sent out on a Monday. 

Reading is so important. Your child will have 2 reading books, which will be changed every Friday. Please read with your child as much as possible and record in the orange reading diary. Please make sure reading books are at school every day because we also hear the children read in school. Reading is also for pleasure so here is a list of books you can share with your child.

All children now have a library book. If your child would like to change their book please can they bring it into school on a Monday.
