Patterns, Patterns Everywhere!
This week we have been looking at patterns in our environment, in nature and repeating patterns. We have made patterns using natural materials, objects around the classroom and even ourselves! We have made colour patterns, size patterns, shape patterns and patterns with actions.

For the last 2 days in Year 1, we have been learning to use a number line. We needed to count how many 'jumps' it would take to get from one number to another. It was important that we counted accurately so that we didn't count too many!
