The Year 2s have been learning about persuasive features of texts. This week we read the story Pig, Pigger and Piggest by Rick Walton. The story contains lots of superlatives, and the children could see how superlatives are used for comparison. We discussed the use of superlatives in adverts and the children thoroughly enjoyed spotting lots of superlatives that had been used. The boys and girls were then set a challenge: sort, group and order the words in order of effect. They worked very well and used their reading skills confidently. Excellent work, year 2!
