This activity allows pupils to look at patterns in a bit more detail, and links well from the Early years pattern lesson. Pupils investigate patterns using different attributes - shape, size and colour. Pupils play games and investigate how many ways they can fill in the colours of a variety of objects, such as flags and socks.
