Last week Primary 2 continued to compare life in the past and present. They enjoyed talking about and tasting the difference in breakfast foods from now and in the past. They explored where the food comes from and the differences in packaging and advertising of foods – they definitely preferred present day breakfast foods!
In Writing the children continue to focus on the persuasive genre and are beginning to use some super persuasive language. This week they created adverts for shops and we discussed the use of catchy slogans, alliteration and asking questions to hook the reader in.
In Maths the children have been further developing subtraction skills and will continue this next week using a variety of different mental strategies.
Outdoor PE will continue on a Wednesday and Thursday and we would be very grateful if children could come dressed appropriately for the weather.
Thank you for your continuing support.
