Year 5 have been working very hard on a new method to help us divide numbers - the bus stop method. After practising the method this week, we did a Maths hunt in class.

After we had collected the data, we created a tally chart and then used this data to create our own line graph outside on the playground. Take a look at our class line graph below!
