Stay absolutely still for a moment. And look all around you. What do you see?
Well, we’re in the classroom, so as you might expect, we can see ‘classroomy’ things like desks and chairs and books and pencils - and sprouting courgette seeds? (Well, it is class 2i after all!)
But take a closer look. What patterns do you see? How could you record the patterns you spot so you will be able to talk about them later? What about this one?
Look closely. How are some patterns the same? What are the similarities between this one…..
And how are they different?
What words could you use to describe them? This one is spotty!
How about this one? What shapes do you see?
I wonder. How many of the patterned things here can you find? They are all in the classroom!
