Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Jump­ing, run­ning, count­ing and read­ing are just some of the dif­fer­ent ways Ash­ford pupils cel­e­brated be­ing 100 days brighter.

Pluck­ley Church of Eng­land Pri­mary School held a fun day last Wed­nes­day to com­mem­o­rate its 100th day of the aca­demic year.

To mark the day, the chil­dren learnt to jump 100cms and run for 100 sec­onds in PE; com­pare their heart rate af­ter 100 re­peated ex­er­cises in sci­ence; re­search what life was like 100 years ago in his­tory; name 100 books they had read in guided read­ing; and cre­ate col­lages with 100 pieces of pa­per in art.

Tessa Berry, cur­ricu­lum co-or­di­na­tor, said: “It was a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for the younger chil­dren to be in­tro­duced to larger num­bers and dif­fer­ent ways of count­ing; and for the older chil­dren to find nu­mer­acy links across the cur­ricu­lum.

“The day cel­e­brated all the hard work the chil­dren and teach­ers have been do­ing.”
