# Maths Patterns

This week we have been talking about patterns in maths. We have looked at shape patterns, shape and colour patterns and number patterns.

Today we worked in groups of four. With a partner we had to make up a number pattern and then swap with the other pair in our group. We then had to add the next two numbers to the pattern and describe the rule we had used to find the numbers.

Mrs Stewart came around to listen to all the groups and thought that there were some really interesting conversations about number going on between us all.

# Instructional Videos

Today we worked together to make some instructional videos on how to make our homemade toothpaste. We think we did a super job. We will be able to show them to other classes so they can make the toothpaste too!

Afterwards we were able to use this to write our instructions. We think the videos really helped us think about the importance of getting the instructions in the right order and not missing anything out.

Please have a look and leave us a comment if you can.
