Symmetry and tessellation

Lesson: Maths

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.
