Room 16’s Hundredth Day of School.

On the Hundredth Day of school we made hundredth day hats with 100 things on them and the number 100 on the front. Mrs McGhie has made hats like this before with her last year's class and they were so popular she thought we’d like to make them too. When we visited Room 4’s blog we saw that they had made 100 Day hats too so we were quite excited about that! We counted to a hundred. We visited other classes blogs and saw what other classes had done for their hundredth day at school. We did lots of activities like a 100 dot to dot and playing 100 games on the wiki. Our class watched a video on Youtube. It had people from the age of 1 to 100 playing the drums. (Thanks to Room 4 Waiuku Primary for this video link). Some of the people in the video had to sit and some could stand. Some were tall and some were small. We read poems about 100. We also changed all the different parts of our Calendar Maths to show 100, such as our Place Value Houses, our Tally Chart and our Place Value Money.

What a great way to practice 100. Maybe you could count along with this.

That sounds like the start of a really good tradition. I'll have to look out for the 100th day next year. We love to count to 100 in our Y1&2 class. This would be a useful extension.

One hundred school days- that's over the half way mark until Christmas. Makes me start to wonder of what I might start thinking about for Christmas presents.

Tena koutou Room 16,

Sounds like you had lots of fun on your 100th day of school. Thanks for writing about what you did, we were really interested.
We would love to see a photo of your 100 day hats - we wonder if they look just like ours???
We also put 100 things on our 100 day crowns also!
Did you have fun when you celebrated 100 days of school?
Have fun!

I think that is a really good way to celebrate 100 days of school.
