19th October 2018

Intro: What is Statistics? (gathering, sorting, presenting and interpreting data)

Activity 1: LO: Children will sort and count data and explain what they have done.

Sorting shapes. In groups children will sort given shapes and then describe what they have done to the group.

Activity 2: LOs: Children will display category data
Children will discuss the results.

Using one groups shapes and the large pictogram mat, show children how they can represent their data. Ask children to draw conclusions from the represented data - such “Which is the most common shape? How do you know?”

Activity 3: LO: Children will display category data
Independent activity - animal sheet. Create a pictogram using the data set.

26th October 2018

Intro: What things could we investigate here?
How do we collect data?

Activity 1: LO: Children will understand how to create a tally chart.
Tally marks - demonstrate.
Group tally challenge

Activity 2: LOs: Children will sort and count data.
Children will display category data.
