# Year 2 Data Handling - Interpreting Data

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with interpreting and constructing simple pictograms, tally charts, block diagrams and simple tables and asking and answering simple questions by counting the number of objects in each category and sorting the categories by quantity.

Interpreting information for children in Year 2 begins with constructing their own tally charts, bar charts, tables and pictograms to record data. This might involve making a chart or table for the most common eye colour in the class, the most popular pet or the favourite colour. Organising, displaying and interpreting this data is a key skill and may require some practise.
