The most popular colour smartie!

Lesson: Maths

Class: Year 2 Year: 2017 - 2018

This week, Year 2 have been looking at data and different ways to present data.

we have had a look at pictograms, tally charts and bar graphs. 

Today we were given the challenge to find out which was the most popular colour of smartie in each pack. 

Children were split into groups of 4 and then were given a pack of smarties. They were to group the smarties into different colours. They then completed a tally chat to see how many of each colour smartie there was. 

They then presented their findings in a bar graph or a pictogram.

The children found that one colour of smartie was more popular in one pack than another pack.
