On the 100th Day at School children explored a range of mathematical activities and investigations in their classrooms and outdoors.
Children went on number hunts, raced 100 metres, made paper chains with 100 chains, built structures with 100 cups and completed 100 exercises! They also explored division using 100 ‘yummy’ things, made 100 glasses, tried to catch 100 spiders and made necklaces with 100 things! They also learnt number songs and rhymes and laid 100 straws along the corridors to see how far they would stretch! Children solved number problems and calculations. Numbers were everywhere in and out of school!
In preparation for the 100th Day at School all children were each given a plain white T-shirt to take home and decorate with 100 ‘things’. On the 100th Day children and staff wore their T-shirts at school. No two T-shirts were the same as families had decorated the T-shirts with so many different ideas including stickers, buttons, paper clips, postage stamps, Lego bricks, sweets, feathers, signatures, superheroes, stars, shapes, dinosaurs, words, hugs, photographs, googly eyes, smiley faces and balloons! The T shirts looked wonderful!
Many children also took up the challenge of finding numbers in magazines, newspapers and anywhere else! All children who participated received a special ‘Number Star’ award certificate!
