Investigating our rubbish!

We have linked our Numeracy this term to our theme 'Our Beautiful World' and how to look after it! We have started by investigating the types and quantities of rubbish we threw away in our class in a day. We had great fun sorting, counting and weighing the contents of our bins (rubber gloves obligatory) and went on to record our findings in the form of bar charts and pictograms.

After this we broadened our investigation to include packaging that we throw away at home. We used Venn and Carroll diagrams to sort these in to a variety of sets.
