National Curriculum: Statistics Year 5 - Making Connections

Making Connections

Teachers should use every relevant subject to develop pupils’ mathematical fluency. Confidence in numeracy and other mathematical skills is a precondition of success across the national curriculum.

Teachers should develop pupils’ numeracy and mathematical reasoning in all subjects so that they understand and appreciate the importance of mathematics.

(National Curriculum in England Framework Document, September 2013, p10)

Connections within Mathematics

Making connections to this topic in adjacent year groups

Year 4

  • interpret and present discrete and continuous data using appropriate graphical methods, including bar charts and time graphs
  • solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in bar charts, pictograms, tables and other graphs

Year 6

  • interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs and use these to solve problems
  • calculate and interpret the mean as an average

Cross-curricular and real life connections

Learners will encounter statistics when comparing data and analysing information.

In science, they will be required to represent and interpret data collected in science investigations.

In geography, they will be plotting and interpreting data for international and local weather as well as other geographical data for population, land use etc.

Statistics are also used in everyday life. E.g. when reading bus timetables and information charts.
