Introduction

What is the courtyard?

  • It is an outside area where we can grow things and sometimes where we learn.
  • It is next to the Hawks classroom
  • The Hawks are a year 5 and 6 class

Why this topic?

  • I wanted to do this topic to see what people thought about it
  • I wanted to find out who people thought the courtyard should belong to, what should be in it, and who should look after it.

What is my research question?

  • What do children at my school think about the courtyard?
methodology
Methodology

Who were my participants?

  • I handed out my questionnaire to Key Stage 2 children at my school
  • I handed out about 50 questionnaires
  • I got 18 back
  • I chose these children because I thought they would be able to read the questionnaire, as younger children might not understand the words.

What methods did I use?

  • I collected my data using a questionnaire
  • I used a mix of open and closed questions
  • For the closed questions I analysed them by drawing a tally chart
  • For my open questions I analysed them by using coding. I typed up all of my answers and trimmed them individually. Then I sorted them out into groups which had the same theme.
  • My research project took 5 months.
ethical issues
Ethical Issues
  • To make sure the questionnaire was anonymous I made sure people did not put their names on it.
  • I made sure that the questionnaires were confidential by keeping them in a locked cupboard.
  • I made sure that I didn’t put complicated words in, so people could understand it.
findings

Question 3

Findings
  • This shows that 9 people said that everyone should use it. However of the 6 Hawks girls asked, 5 said the courtyard should belong to Hawks
  • This might be because they want it all for themselves, without the younger children

What I found out

  • Out of 18 people, 9 said that everyone should be able to use the courtyard. Of the 6 Hawks girls asked, 5 said that just the Hawks should use it
  • My research has found out that a lot of people would like some more seating in the courtyard. 14 out of 18 people said this.
  • I also found that a lot of people would be willing to help with the courtyard.

How did my project go?

  • I think it went quite well, because I found out everything that I wanted to find out
  • If I did it again I would try and hand it out to more people so I got more questionnaires back.
