Creating pictographs

During Computing with Mr Baddhan, Year 1 Puffins have been tallying up their favourite items to create pictographs.

The children created a tally for the following items:
► Favourite farm animal
► Favourite material
► Favourite pet
► Favourite minibeast

They then used Purple Mash’s 2Count program to add data into a pictograph.

The children then created a pictograph by gathering their own tally data.

Subtraction strategies

Today the Puffins have been using all the taught strategies of how to put subtraction into action. They have all chosen the correct method for the questions and used their knowledge to complete all the problems. I was very impressed with how most children were able to create their own number lines to support their subtracting.
