Repeating patterns

repeating patterns2, originally uploaded by LMH_.

We made these fabric squares in year 3 last week. It was the final phase of our work on repeating patterns. Hanging them up as part of our classroom displays has made the room look very festive!
We made the printing blocks by drawing card templates then cutting the blocks out of neoprene foam and sticking them onto thick, folded cardboard.

The work on patterns has been good fun. It stared with maths patterns, then Mhindi hands.

Then we moved on to printing patterns using bought blocks.

If you want to see the rest of the children’s designs here’s a link to a Flickr Slideshow of the whole project.
