Today and tomorrow's lesson moves onto children building on their skills of reading and interpreting the data in a pictogram to looking at other ways data can be presented. They will move onto look at how data collected in a tally chart can then be presented in either a pictogram or tally chart. The teaching video takes you through the different steps the children will take as they build up to achieving the new objective. The video includes worked examples as well as questions for the children to have a go at and discuss with an adult. Use the video at the pace your child needs it and keep stopping and starting when you need too. Any work from the examples on the video can be done in the child's book. This should hopefully give your child the confidence to then complete the first questions on the independent work. The second sheet of the independent work is problem solving and reasoning so don't feel the pressure to push your child onto these unless you feel they secure with the main objective.
Some of the questions in the independent work ask your child to draw a bar chart of information that has been collected in a tally chart. The focus is for the children to understand how to change the data from the numerical value in the tally chart into a bar on the bar chart. For this reason, we have included to graph templates so that the drawing of the graph at this stage doesn't distract from the understanding of the data. You may want to discuss with your child the value of the scale on the axis-for example could they go up in 2s or even 5s depending on the data they are transferring from the tally chart.
