Maths Meeting (15 minutes)

How many ways can you make this number?

Maths (45 Minutes)

Today in maths, we will be starting a new topic of Bar Graphs.

A bar graph displays information (data) by using rectangular bars of different heights.

A bar chart has a vertical axis with numbers on it, and a horizontal axis showing values of something that has been investigated.

Please watch this video to explain how to make and read a bar graph:

For your task today, you are to work through the questions and complete the bar graphs in your books.

You must use a ruler and it must be one number per square.


One you have finished your Bar Graph, you are going to collect your own data and make your own. You might see:

·      How many boys and girls are on walks.

·      Different types of animals you see

·      Different coloured cars you see.

Present these in a table. Make sure to label your axis.
