Bluebirds have been finding bar charts very tricky so this morning, the children were shown these examples to spot the common mistakes! They were VERY critical about Mrs Parry’s attempts on the white board and had to give her lots advice about where she was going wrong! The class constructed a list of steps to success! These included:
► Labelling the scale accurately using the lines.
► Ensuring the scale is evenly spaced and of suitable jumps.
► Label the axis and include a title.
► Start at zero.
► Use a ruler and the blue lines in the maths book.
► Evenly space each bar.
► Shade the bar carefully and accurately.
Can you spot the mistakes ?!
All the class felt extremely proud after today’s lesson and could see great improvement in their work from yesterday.
