Term 3 Week 1

Term 3 has started with a bang as we celebrated 100 Days of School. Through out the week we worked on a range of different 100 activities ranging from art doodles, to apps to age our faces and of course plenty of maths activities.

Our maths rich task saw us working out how many children we would need to show 100 fingers.

Take a look at some more of our 100 Days fun on this slide show. Don't forget to check out the great 100 ideas that were sent in from home..a great effort, well done to everyone who had a go!

More 100 Days activities found their way into Discovery Time.
