This week at Whitehouse Common we have been celebrating Black History Week! In Year 2 we focussed specifically on Nelson Mandela, the former president of South Africa.

To celebrate with participated in lots of different activities. As you know, we have been reading all about him in guided reading, answering questions about the text as well as sharing our opinions and discussing the meaning of words like "apartheid". We also did some special writing about how his story made us feel. Another activity included practising our handwriting by copying some of his famous quotes. Our favourite was "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world".  Finally, we created this fantastic flag to display our work.
