Activity 1 – Home Patterns

Focus – I am exploring patterns all around me.

Resources – items in the home.

Make a pattern out of things you find at home e.g. items from outside, kitchen utensils, hair clips, toys – anything you can think of. Patterns can also be drawn.

Families are invited to email a photograph to our home learning email address


Activity 2 – Patterns at Home

Focus – I am exploring patterns all around me.

Resources – items in the home.

At home, look for items that have patterns (e.g. wallpaper, fabric, socks, scarves, adverts). These can be photographed and emailed in to class if you wish –
Parents may also like to do vegetable printing with poster paints and potatoes or carrots cut into interesting shapes.


Activity 3 – Patterns at Home

Focus – I can create a more organised pattern using a variety of materials, sounds or movements.

Resources – items in the home.

At meal times, if practical, arrange your child’s food in any kind of pattern on the plate. For example, cucumber slices ranged round a burger or carrot sticks alternated with sausage rings. This gives an opportunity for the family to talk about – and invent – patterns together.


Activity 4 – Patterns at Home

Focus – I can recognise, describe and create patterns.

Resources – paper (draw an outline of -shirt) and pens

Design a pattern for Teddy’s T-shirt and bring in to school to share.
