Year 2 have this week started a maths unit on data collecting. After learning about how to use tally charts, the children spent a session ‘tallying’ information about their friends favourite fruit. The children learned to ‘close the gate’ when reaching 5, which makes it easier to count up the tally at the end. The children then converted their results into bar graphs and analysed the information.
Following this, we will be using tally charts to create our own animal bar charts based on habitat, eating habits and other criteria.
