Pattern In The Fs / Nns


 Share

Recommended Posts

Doing my planning for nect week and one of this weeks objectives from the NNS is to talk about and recreate symmetrical patterns in the environment and other cultures

 

Things i have done in the past are the butterly folding in half paintings, symmetrical shape patterns with 2d and 3d shapes but i am getting bored with these - so the kids must be

 

Any one any fresh ideas that i can add in?

 

Thnak You

I'm not a teacher but this is a site with some lovely butterfly pictures

I guess you could look at symmetry around us in patterns on walls, floors, fabrics etc. Even things like car wheels, pizza, my computer speakers, the glass my wine is in ( :D ), ornaments - goodness, its everywhere!! :o

Similar to JacquieL's idea of half pictures, why not collect some leaves, cut in half, use a mirror to make them "whole" and then invite the children to draw the other half.

A nice idea for repeating patterns is to make caterpillar bookmarks. I cut out loads of circles 2p size out of felt and the children glued them together to make a bookmark.

Thet really enjoyed it.

You could do pattern matching.... take photo of a natural pattern and get the children to find where it is from.

Or crating their own wrpping paper using sponges and paint.
