Collecting Data in Computing

Over the last few weeks, Year 2 have been learning all about collecting and representing data. As a class, they discussed different ways to collect data. Miss Underwood suggested the children could collect data in a Pictogram. Together the children thought about all of the benefits representing data this way.

Today the children carried out their own data collection. Working together, the children had to roll a dice twenty times, recording what number it landed on each time. Once they had each collected their data, the children were able to use Purple Mash to represent it in a pictogram. The children found that when the data was represented in a pictogram, it was much easier to interpret and draw conclusions from.
