Activity: copy an AB (a pattern with two things in) pattern
How to do it: Discuss the nature of the pattern: how has the pattern been made? Patterns can have a range of features such as varying objects, size or orientation. Have a go at copying a pattern that your grown up makes using resources listed below:
footwear: shoe, welly, shoe, welly..., triangles …actions and sounds: jump, twirl, jump, twirl, jump… or clap, stamp, clap, stamp…
collecting things in the outdoors environment: stick leaf, stick, leaf, stick, leaf…
If you find it tricky: Everyone can try recreating an AB pattern
Challenge: Copy a pattern using three objects.
