We created a database about Year 5 pupils and added ourselves as records. We explored the database to see how data could be arranged, sorted and grouped. Then we searched the database to find answers to specific questions, such as: How many children wear glasses?; Which children have blonde hair?; Who has blue eyes & wears glasses?; etc. Here is some of the information we discovered:
How many children have brown hair?
Who is 9 years old & has freckles?
We are also generating our own vegetable database to include as many vegetables as we can think of. We will create our own questions to ask the rest of the class.
