Maths

This week we are going to learn about statistics. We will be learning about pictograms and bar charts. A pictogram uses pictures to show information, remember to look at the key so you know how much each picture is worth. A bar chart uses bars to show information, check the side to find out the scale you need to read.

  There is some more information about these on the websites, videos and documents below:

Reading Pictograms - Corbettmaths

Corbettmaths - A video that shows how to interpret pictograms.

Bar Charts - Primary

This video shows how to answer 3 bar chart questions - ideal for students studying Key Stage 2 mathematics Questions: https://corbettmathsprimary.com/2018/06...

Activity 1:  Have a look at ‘Pictograms and bar charts’ on my maths. Remember to read the questions carefully!

OR

Try A, B or C on page 120 – 121 in your target your maths book. Read the examples and information about the pictograms carefully! I have attached the answers below so you can check your work, remember to go back and see where you have gone wrong if you find a mistake!

Activity 2: Have a look at ‘Bar charts and frequency tables’ on My maths

OR

Try A, B or C on page 124 – 125 in your target your maths book. I have attached the answers below so you can check your work, remember to go back and see where you have gone wrong if you find a mistake!

Activity 3: Have a look at ‘interpreting data’ on mymaths. There are some two-step questions on this task. Remember our trick for dealing with two-step questions: Find the information you can for the first step, then, when you have more information see if you can answer the next step of the question.

OR

Try A, B, or C on page 126 -127 in your target maths book. I have attached the answers below so you can check your work, remember to go back and see where you have gone wrong if you find a mistake!
Draw pictogram and a bar chart about the I spy sheets attached below. Or you could draw them about objects at home, maybe how many books, how many soft toys, how many toys with wheels and how many pencils you have in a room? Or you could go outside and count how many trees, how many flowers, how many bugs and how many animals you can see. Can you come up with your own idea of a bar chart or pictogram you could draw?

Extension 2:  I have allocated you some task on mymaths about fractions, to give you the chance to practice your fraction skills again.
