I have been so incredibly busy both in my teaching and personal life since school started back last week so I must apologise for the lack of posts lately! Today I would just like to share a few quick photographs from our 100th Day of School celebration last week!

We celebrated a little early as some of my precious cherubs added a few extra sticks while I was away on sick leave. However, I was happy to get the celebration over and done with during the first week back. We also had our school Chaplain come to film our celebration to show on parade this week – the kids were SO excited! I wish I had of put more effort into our activities for the day but our first week was insanely busy so maybe next year I will have a dream 100th Day haha


During our morning session, we made our awesome 100 Day hats from Hannah Martin on Teachers Pay Teachers. The kids loved colouring in the 100 dots and some kids coloured them in groups of ten. We also coloured and counted some 100 day pizzas from Charlotte’s Clips!


During the middle session, we did some creative writing about what we would do when we’re 100 years old. There were some very cute ideas circulating the room but many of the boys insisted they would buy a Playstation 3 or lots and lots of Wii games haha!

We then cut out a circle using skin coloured papers and scrunched them up to make wrinkles. I saw Deanna Jump suggested ripping the pieces up but I felt it was a bit beyond the patience level of the teacher skill level of my kiddies.


I’ve shared some images from some of my amazing writers who have shown HUGE growth since before the holidays – I’m one proud teacher!



The granny above should read ‘Nanny’ but for some reason I wrote Nan – I’ve already fixed it up so that Mummy can see how clever her daughter is for using the /ee/ diagraph that we have just learnt!


At the end of the day, I had planned to have a big 100 cake but I didn’t get around to baking all the bits and pieces so we settled for some 100 cookies instead. I tortured the kiddies and made them wait until they went home to open them so that all the parents could see how crafty I am haha


It was such a fun day but very, VERY exhausting for this tired teacher. I feel like I haven’t even had holidays yet – this is going to be a loooooong term I think!
