This week in Maths we are learning about repeating patterns.
Patterns can be made with colours, shapes, noises, actions, natural objects...in fact with anything you have around the house.
We are working on simple patterns this week. Here are some examples:
red blue red blue red blue red blue
clap stamp clap stamp clap stamp
apple orange apple orange apple orange
fork spoon fork spoon fork spoon
Encourage your child to say the pattern out loud to help them notice how the pattern repeats the part that is the same (eg: the 'red blue' part or the 'clap stamp' part) over and over and over again.
Children should be able to notice the pattern, copy patterns, continue a pattern that already shows 3 repeats of the pattern and create their own repeating patterns.
Please use the resource sheets below, alongside items you have at home (building blocks, bricks, toy cars, fruit, cutlery, sticks, leaves) to support your child in learning about repeating patterns.
Don't forget to sing some songs with repeating patterns, such as 'Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes' or 'Clap you hands and Wiggle your Fingers.'
