    We are focusing on data handling next week and I am lacking inspration! I need an activity that the children can do to collect data, then use the data to create a pictogram/bar chart and then answer questions.
    My problem is coming up with a fun activity though as we have laready done- fruit, crisps etc and I want something that will interest my class.
    I would really appreciate any ideas.

    Favourite TV programme /cartoon /song /comic
    Favourite chocolate bar (I used cadburys miniture heros and celebrations they could pick their favourite and used the wrapper to create the pictogram)

    how about fave ball games? You could allow them to have short sessions using a basketball, football, tennis ball, rugby ball, for example, and then after that survey the class and ask their fave ball game out of those.

    favourite school dinner is a good one and there is a great video on Teachers' TV demonstrating a lesson doing that. The chn make human bar charts - it is great!

    I'd like to say thanks very much for this as well! I'm teaching Y1 data handling, and I'm sure this will come in handy.
    I also had a look at the rest of the series and found a load of great videos for other subjects. Thanks a lot!
