Pattern Detectives

This week we have been exploring patterns in the world around us. We have learned that a pattern is something that repeats over and over

 We began by looking at animal patternx and we were able to match the pattern to the correct animal we could see on the big screen.

‘This is from the giraffe’
‘The snake has a green and white pattern.’

We learned how some animals use their patterns to help them. The male peacock shows his patterned feathers to the feamle peacock.

The children also enjoyed exploring patterns by making rubbings from embossing plates.  They were able to describe the different patterns they could see.

‘ I have made a spotty pattern’

The children then decided to see what other pattern rubbings they could find around the nursery.

‘I am making a pattern using the floor.’

 

‘I have found a pattern on my shoe.’

We are beginning to learn to copy and create our own patterns using different colours.
