Since the first day of this school year, the students in Year 1 have been counting each day that we have come to school. This coming Thursday, 8th February, will be our 100th day of school. We are going to mark this day with a small celebration for the children. They will be able to visit all three Year 1 classes and work with the teachers and assistants on fun activities connected to the number 100. For example, the students will have the opportunity to make Dalmatian pictures with 100 spots, build models with 100 pieces and make sun glasses in the shape of the number 100.
You might like to talk about this event with your child at home and help them to prepare something to share in class on this day. For example, students could bring in a bag with 100 pieces of lego or pasta in it, make a picture out of 100 dots or draw 100 tally marks. This is completely optional, but could be a fun way of sparking discussions about numbers at home.
Wishing everyone a great weekend!
The Year 1 Team
