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

Just like last week we are going to be writing another story. Can you remember the 5 parts to a story? They are:
Opening - The opening to a story usually describes the setting and the main character in the story. e.g. one day, there was a.... and she lived in....
Build up - this talks about where their main character was going or what they were doing. If they were on a journey or on a task. It gives us a sense of what the plot is going to be.
Problem - The problem is where the "bad thing" might happen to your main character. Maybe they lost something, or they meet a baddy, or they get hurt etc.
Solution- This is where they solve the problem, this could be that they find their way home with help from a friend, or someone saves them, or they find the thing that was lost. In some way the problem is solved.
Ending - How does the story end, do they have a party? Does the main character go home? Go to bed? Never want to go outside again? What is there a moral? What is the ending to the story?
We are always going to use these when writing a story. Can you look at this picture, and think what could each part be? Where is your story going to be set? Who is your character going to be? Where are they going to go/do? What is going to be your problem?
Can you fill in a story mountain for this story? (sheet below) You can draw pictures for each box to show your ideas. This will help you plan your story. We will write the story next lesson.
Can you use your story mountain to write a story about this picture. Remember to include all the 5 sections of a story.
