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.














A pictogram is a clear visual way of presenting information

The green bar is the tallest so it must have the highest value


Yellow is the shortest bar and red was the most popular colour

Most children grow at least a few centimetres each year


Each group is a group of 5 when we tally

Excellent got 6 and Good got 12


The table could have a space for the child's name, and a list of five or six programmes to choose from

Labelling the information on a graph is really helpful for anyone trying to understand it


The largest section of the 'pie' is blue, so this is most popular

Data Handling covers all the work in maths about using data and results
