Year 5 Block C – Handling data and measures
The focuses of mathematics learning within this block are:
 Construct frequency tables, pictograms and bar and line graphs
 Finding the mode
 Collecting, organising, presenting and interpret data to answer related questions
 Identifying further questions
 Explaining reasoning using diagrams, graphs and text
 Estimating and measuring
 Metric units, conversions
 Readings from scales
The objectives for the block are listed in the table – the righthand column indicates how the objectives might be addressed in the units
Objectives 
Unit 1 
Unit 2 
Unit 3 
Plan and pursue an enquiry; present evidence by collecting, organising and interpreting information; suggest extensions to the enquiry 



Explain reasoning using diagrams, graphs and text; refine ways of recording using images and symbols 



Answer a set of related questions by collecting, selecting and organising relevant data; draw conclusions, using ICT to present features, and identify further questions to ask 



Construct frequency tables, pictograms and bar and line graphs to represent the frequencies of events and changes over time 



Find and interpret the mode of a set of data 



Describe the occurrence of familiar events using the language of chance or likelihood 



Read, choose, use and record standard metric units to estimate and measure length, weight and capacity to a suitable degree of accuracy (e.g. the nearest centimetre); convert larger to smaller units using decimals to one place (e.g. change 2.6kg to 2600g) 



Interpret a reading that lies between two unnumbered divisions on a scale
