Activity 45: Simple patterns

Teaching points: This resources pack introduces pupils to the idea of repeating patterns of an ABAB design, and then to an AABAAB design. Pupils look at colour patterns, shape patterns and picture patterns using Welsh emblems. They have the opportunity to finish off patterns which have been started using colours, shapes and pictures. Pupils create their own colour patterns using a worksheet of different shapes.
