Maths this week is looking and learning about patterns. This includes repeating patterns, which can be using colour, size and shapes and also looking at symmetrical patterns (symmetry). As you get older you will also learn about patterns with numbers. A fun experiment to learn about symmetry is holding a mirror out in front of your face. Do you look the same or different?
There are PowerPoints and activity sheets to complete across the week under each day.
Lines of symmetry using a mirror
Sometimes called reflection or mirror symmetry, the line of symmetry is easy to see as one half of an object or shape is an identical reflection of the other half. The line of symmetry is defined by an imaginary line that passes through the centre of an object or shape. The line divides the shape into identical halves.
