This week P2M have been learning about the different ways we collect information everyday in school e.g. the register, lunch numbers and the Travel Tracker. We have discussed why information needs to be collected and how different people use the information.
We have been exploring different ways to record and display information. We have been learning how to use tally marks accurately.
Today we investigated how to sort and display information about our “playpieces”. First of all we sorted them according to how healthy and unhealthy they were. We then looked at the display and asked what information we could take from the display. Today it seems, we had more unhealthy snacks than healthy ones!
Then we sorted them a different way…Sweet or Savoury?
Then we wondered where Mrs Morgan’s popcorn should go because it was both! Poppy suggested it should go in the middle! So we overlapped the circles to create a new category…Sweet & Savoury. We learned these types of information displays are called Venn diagrams. We will be learning more about these this week.
