A buzz of excitement filled the Foundation O’Brien and Foundation/One Weideman classrooms on Friday morning the 3rd August as our Foundation students got ready to celebrate their 100th day at school.
In the week building up to this special day, we asked all the Foundation students to collect 100 small objects of their choice and to bring it to school ready for our special day. Everyone showed great creativity in their choice of objects and we saw everything from balloons to pasta.
Parents were invited to join us in celebrating this momentous occasion and we got everyone moving to our ‘Counting to 100’ – song. Foundation/One Weideman finally got to place the number 100 in its pocket on the hundred chart! Then the sorting commenced. Students and parents worked together to group their 100 objects into ten groups of 10.
After counting, some future thinking was required as students completed their “By the time I am 100 , I want to….” activity.
Here are some of the wonderful responses.
