Activity Week

Year 2 really enjoyed our activity week and taking on some new challenges.

Great Fire of London

Children in Year 2 have been really excited about their Great Fire of London Topic.  They have been making their own Tudor style houses as part of their homework.

The Animal Kingdom

As part of their topic on the animal kingdom, Year 2 have been comparing Wythenshawe and Kenya.  They have looked at lots of different African masks and designed and made their own masks.  They have worked really well to create masks that look just like their designs.


English Writing

Year 2 have been writing their own adventure stories and created their own adventure story book. They looked at pictures from the film  ‘Up’ as inspiration.

Black History Month

Our topic this term is Explorers and we looked at Mae Jemison.  She was a NASA astronaut and was the first black woman to travel into space. Year 2 also listened to Bob Marley and wrote down how his music made them feel.


Year 2 really enjoy their PE lessons and being physically active outside and taking part in different circuits activities.
