February Learning

What have we been learning about in February.

With Mary Queen of Scots, we learnt about her life in France and where she married the Daulphin of France.

In French we have began to learn our words for members of our family, Une Soeur (Sister) and Un Frere (Brother).

In Numeracy, we have been focusing on our times tables and in Maths we have been looking at the name and prosperities of 3D shapes.

Our Learning This Week.

This week we learnt a number of interesting things .

We learnt about 3D shapes, I learnt Toblerone tube is a triangular prism. I learnt the difference between 2D and 3D shapes.

In RME, we learn’t the Pope is the head of the Catholic church and he was born in Argentina.

We went to an athletics festival, we did a lot of different activities we hadn’t done before like long jump and relays

In art and to do with Mary Queen of Scots, we drew a picture of a young Mary when she lived in France.  She had four friends with her all called Mary. (That must have been complicated.) Mary Seaton, Mary Beaton (they rhyme), Mary Livingston and Mary Fleming.

We also learnt Roman Numerals, they used letters instead of numbers. Here are a few I is a 1, V is used for a 5 and X is 10. Most of us are VIII.

Have a great February break.

We also made wanted posters with Mary Queen of Scots face on the posters. Mary Queen of Scots was born on the 8th of December 1542. She was 6 days old when she became Queen of Scots.
