Pictograms are an ancient way of presenting information, but are still popular today. Images associated with the subject are used to show information. At this stage there is a one to one correspondence eg one sun represents one sunny day, although they can get much harder (eg one sun represents 10 sunny days, half a sun represents 5 sunny days etc).
These two pictograms look at the weather; the number of sunny days and the number of rainy days and ask a series of questions. The questions use the vocabulary that year 2 children are expected to know, such as, ‘what is the difference?’ ‘ how many altogether?’ etc.
It is a good idea to get children to collect their own data and present the information in the form of a pictogram.
