Year 2: Tokyo 2020 Japanese Manga Art

The children in Year 2 have been learning all about the Olympic Games this week as it is the (hopeful) lead up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games beginning this Friday. 

They have learnt about the history of the Olympic Games and have watched videos and seen photographs of Olympians past and present, including Sir Mo Farah, Simone Biles, Sir Chris Hoy and Laura Kenny.

We then looked at some of the new British athletes to watch out for in the coming weeks including Adam Peaty, Dina Asher-Smith and CK Ujah.  However, the overall favourite was Sky Brown, the young skateboarding champion. 

To celebrate all things Japanese, the children then designed their own piece of artwork of an athlete using the Japanese manga style. 

We are very proud of their work and hope that they get to watch their favourite athletes perform and win gold medals. 

Go Team GB!
