Second Class Room 6: Collecting Data

On Tuesday, we walked to the Citywest Hotel bridge.  We were collecting information about the vehicles on the street.  We call that data.  We were counting how many vehicles went under the bridge.  We used tally marks to help us record.  We had to be very careful on the bridge and walking on the footpath.

This meant that children were awarded 1 point for bringing in a healthy lunch. Fit4Skool also picks one healthy vegetable and fruit every fortnight, allowing each child to gain extra points this week if they bring in lettuce and an apple as part of their lunch....
