On the 8th July Year 6 created a human histogram based on their heights. Having collected data on the whole year group, they then mapped this in human form, marked out a life-size histogram and then compared this to a range of data on Year 6 heights collected in previous years.
This practical activity was the first part of a maths tutorial from Jan Heffernan our chair of governors. We heard about the interesting directions a career in maths can take and the application of maths to real-life situations. Many thanks to Mrs Heffernan for coming to speak to us.
