New downloadable lessons

We want to help you encourage your pupils to get active and creative through our brand-new resources that explore data with a sports themed twist.

In Colourful Kits, your five to seven year old pupils will start by spotting simple data attributes of colours and patterns in flags and then use these to design colourful kits for athletes from around the world. Combining Geography, PE and Computing in a fun and creative activity, pupils start to learn the basics of data - which is about ‘attributes.’

Through Data Dash, your seven to nine year old pupils will be literally sprinting their way to understanding the data modelling process and the key concepts of data values and calculated data. Mathematical links are strong in this activity, with pupils using tables and solving multi-step measurement problems using time and distance.
