Firstly, we counted the amount of children in the class and found out that there are 17 boys and 13 girls (not including the teacher).This makes 30 children and one teacher (31 people).The next thing to do was to ask all the children in the class (including the teacher) what month they were born in,and how old they  and where.We also asked our teacher what month she was born in and her age.The next thing we did was we wrote all of the months in the year and the number of children in that month on squared paper. We got 3 people in January, February, March, April, August and September.In May and July we found that there was 1 person in each month. In November there was no one, in December there was 2 people, in June there was 4 people and finally with the most people was October with 5 people (including our teacher Mrs Johnston). We also found out that nearly all the class are 10 and only 1 child is 9 (excluding our teacher). There are 25 people that are 10, and 5 people that are 9.

We worked as a group of three but did the whole class. We gave each member of the class a sticky note and asked them to write their name and the month they were born. We then calculated each answer to the following questions that were given. Then we sorted each answer into a graph. Here is part of what we found out:

January: 2 girls and 1 boy
February: 1 girl and 3 boys
March: 1 girl and 2 boys
April: 0 girls and 2 boys
May: 1 girl and 0 boys
June: 2 girls and 1 boy
July: 1 girl and 0 boy
August: 2 girls and 2 boys
September: 2 girls and 0 boys
October: 1 girls and 3 boys
November: 0 girls and 0 boys
December: 0 girls and 2 boys

We then calculated each persons age and how many girls were a certain age and how many boys were a certain age.

3 girls are 9
10 girls are 10
14 boys are 10
2 boys are 9

Libby , Jada-Mia, Neha and Fatima sent in a graph showing their birthdays
