Have a go at the one of the colour by 2D shape pictures attached below. How many of each 2D shape can you find?

Day 5.

Now we are going to use what we have learnt about shape to explore patterns.  Use the link below to find out abit more about patterns.

recognise and create patterns

Patterns are all around us.  Look around your house and garden and see how many different patterns you can find.

Now it's your turn. Can you create some repeating patterns?  Maybe you could get creative and use your art materials. Alternatively you could go outside and use natural materials or even household objects. Don't forget to take some photographs of your creations to show us!
