# Week starting 7/2/22

## Maths

This week we are beginning statistics, not all lessons have a worksheet to complete.

### Day 1 - begin looking at tallying.

Explain we will be making a mark for each thing we are counting/tallying. We will make 4 lines straight up and the 5th time we make a mark, we need to do it diagonally so we are creating groups of 5. Explain we do this so it is easier to count. Using this simple rhyme can help children to remember: 1,2,3,4 and the 5th one closes the door.

Today, find things to count up and tally. Maybe how many cars of different colours you can see from the window. You could call family members to find out which flavour of crisps is the most popular. Create a tally chart of what you see or find out.

### Day 3:

today we will be learning about pictograms, where 1 picture equals 1 object.

Look at the tally chart you made on Monday (or make a new one!) and make a new chart, leaving the number column blank. Then draw a simple picture for each object ie one car=one car of any colour, or a cirlce = one car. Draw a key at the side of the pictogram to make your chart easy to read.

What else could you make a pictogram for?
