Learning to create frequency tables

At the start of this week we went outside to collect data about what transport was passing the school for Mr Burford. We discussed different ways that we could record this data, and decided that it would be best to write it down. We learnt how to create frequency tables and record the number using a tally. Each pupil created their own frequency table and decided beforehand what categories they wanted to record. Some pupils decided they wanted to collect data about the colour of the transport, and some decided that they wanted to collect data about the type of transport. Next we’re going to learn how to represent this data using pictograms and bar charts.

Here’s some photos of us collecting our data!
