Year 5 have increase their knowledge of databases greatly today with the various activities we have undertaken . This morning, we analysed a database of over 800 Pokemon. Children started classifying the data with one search term, but soon were able to add 3 or more search criteria to find specific Pokemon on the list by their characterstics. We built on our skills this afternoon by collaborating on a whole class database, documenting the nutritional value in Burger King food. We used Boolean values to see how many items on the list contained Fruit or Vegetables , and were able to create graphs to compare the data. As always, we finished the week with a Kahoot. You will see both elation and despair in the photo, as the children get their results.
