100 Days of School and 100 Days Smarter in Year 1
Just imagine, we have now been at school for 100 days! In Year 1, developing basic numeracy skills is an important component of maths curriculum and the 100th day at school was a great opportunity to elaborate on our numeracy skills in fun and exciting ways. The highlight was when we explored what one hundred looks like when spread out on the floor.
And how do you do that? Well, each student brought in 100 items (thank you for your support with this at home) and lined them up in neat rows creating long lines on the floor. Of course, one hundred represents itself in other areas than just maths and therefore, it was also a great opportunity to explore the number cross curricular. Have you ever wondered about how beautiful you will look as a 100-year-old person? We did and made pictures of our future selves. We also counted sprinkles on fairy bread, made number lines and even managed to tidy up in 100 seconds! Ask your child whether they preferred jumping for 100 seconds or being quiet for 100 seconds? I know what the teachers preferred!
