Autumn Data! 📊
Last week, Senior Infants were learning about data which we know is about collecting information! As we are in a new season, we thought it would be fun to collect some information about the autumnal objects that can be found around the school! 🍂 The class explored the grounds of the school along with Ms Ince and recorded the amount of autumn objects they found into their books. They were very observant and found lots of different items! The class then returned to the classroom and began recording their data on bar charts 📊
