Data and information – Grouping data

This suite of resources from Teach computing, cover the Year 1 Computing Unit, Data and Information: Grouping Data. This unit introduces pupils to data and information. They will begin by using labels to put objects into groups, and labeling these groups. Pupils will demonstrate that they can count a small number of objects, before and after the objects are grouped. They will then begin to demonstrate their ability to sort objects into different groups, based on the properties they choose. Finally, pupils will use their ability to sort objects into different groups to answer questions about data.

This unit follows a suggested learning loop of six lessons:

1. Label and Match

2. Group and Count

3. Describe an Object

4. Making different groups

5. Comparing Groups

6. Answering Questions

All planning documents and resources are provided for each lesson.

Lesson 1 - Label and match

In this lesson, pupils will begin to understand that objects have many different labels that can be used to put them into groups. They will name different objects and begin to experiment with placing them into different groups. Pupils will also label a group of objects, and begin to understand that an object can...

Lesson 2 - Group and count

In this lesson, pupils will begin to think about grouping objects based on what the objects are. They will demonstrate the ability to count a small number of objects before they group them, and will then begin to show that they can count groups of objects with the same property. Pupils will also begin to learn that...

Lesson 3 - Describe an object

In this lesson, pupils will begin to understand that objects can be described in many different ways. They will identify the properties of objects and begin to understand that properties can be used to group objects; for example, objects can be grouped by colour or size. Finally, pupils will demonstrate their...
