Human Tally Marks

We have been learning to use tally marks to record information. We have learnt that tally marks are in bundles of 5. The 5th mark we use to tie the bundle together. We used human tally marks to work out how many children were at school.
We skip counted in 5s and counted on 2 more to find out how many children were at school.
