Wearing Onesies for 100 Days of School!

It's two days into the third term of our school year, and today is our 100th day of school.
We have been using our classroom calendar and a 10-frames chart to count the days.

Part-way through, we started a new chart as well, to collect the number pairs that make 100.
Can you see any patterns?

We wore our onesies or our pyjamas for maths.

One of our activities was to choose a number and see if we could share 100 objects into equal groups of that number.

We made ...

10 groups of 10
2 groups of 50
4 groups of 25
100 groups of 1
5 groups of 20

50 groups of 2

20 groups of 5

Some numbers didn't work out exactly and
there were some left-overs.

4 didn't make equal groups

6 didn't make equal groups

3 didn't make equal groups

9 didn't make equal groups

11 didn't make equal groups

12 didn't make equal groups.

Here is a challenge for you!

The answer is 100.
What might the question be?

Year 3's play: Little Monster goes to School

One of our school's annual events is Repertory for Kids
The primary classes prepare plays - the guidelines are 
no more than  three props, and the students 
have to take charge of getting the plays ready.
This year the plays are around the theme of anti-bullying.
B4's Year 3 present their play 'Little Monster goes to School'.
In our play, Little Monster's classmates stand up for him.

It's important to stand up against bullies. 
What are some other ways of preventing bullying?

Visit our school Repertory page to see the plays from the other classes.
