We are continuing with patterns this week. As children work on patterns involving more elements, they can be challenged to continue patterns which do not end after a whole unit of repeat so that is what the maths challenge is today.
1. Can you talk to your family about what the unit of repeat is in my pattern and what you think will come next? I have used lots of different types of patterns.
2. In your maths wallet you have a caterpillar pattern sheet. You only get to see the first part of the pattern and a little bit. See if you can use colours to complete the caterpillar. Can you describe the patterns to your family?
3. Watch the patterns practise song below and see if you can guess what comes next before the song tells you!
