Symmetry and tessellation
Class: Oak: Year Two and Three Year: 2019 - 2020
During the last few weeks we have been looking at symmetry and pattern making in maths.
The children used a dotted grid to create their own unique design. They then thought about colour and painted with watercolour which involved real concentration!
I reduced and copied them on the photocopier. Then the children had to cut them out and arrange them in a repeated pattern. They soon discovered that other shapes were created when they assembled them.
We learnt about tessellating shapes.
