100 days of school! 

On Friday the 15th February 2019 our Nursery and Reception children celebrated the 100th day of school.

Children came to school in their fantastic T- shirts decorated with 100 objects. The designs were amazing. This was a great opportunity for the children to work creatively with their parents in preparation for the big day and express their interests. On the day, the children showed off their newly created T-shirts during the fashion show.

We enjoyed a break from the normal routine for the day as we practised Maths skills using games and activities based on the number 100 such as finger printing – counting in tens to 100, missing numbers on a 100 square, writing 100 words on a scroll and 100 numbers, sets of ten actions up to 100, throwing beans bags to add numbers totalling to 100. The children and adults really enjoyed the fun activities. 

Throughout the day, all children had lots of opportunities to participate in of fun games and mini workshops.

This is how they see it:

“It is really good because it’s very funny.”

“I like numbers and then I find a picture and then I colour it.”

“We are wearing new T-shirts. I made it with my mum. I t was fun. And it’s beautiful.”

“I can count to 100….. and more.”

“We are counting to 100 today because we are in school for 100 years.”

“We learn to count. And the we play games. They have numbers.”

“Soooooo much fun.”

“Numbers are good. And my house is number 56, and my grandma’s house is 56 too.  You must know all the numbers. ”
