Numeracy

Learning objective: I can recognise repeated patterns by shape, size or colour.

I have put some words in bold and I would like you to think about what they mean.

Repeated pattern __________________________________________________

Shape ___________________________________________________________

Size _____________________________________________________________

Colour ___________________________________________________________

 

A repeated pattern is a set of shapes or lines that is copied lots of times. The pattern may use different shapes or shapes of different colours and sizes.

2D shapes are completely flat, they have sides and vertices. An example of a 2D shape is a triangle.

The size of something is how big or small it is.

Colour is what we see when we look at things. Examples of colours are red, yellow and blue.

 

In focus: Look at the image below. What shape would be where the question mark is? Discuss this with somebody at home.

 

Let’s learn: Let’s look at the in focus together. We can see that there is a repeating pattern of a semicircle, triangle and rectangle every 3 shapes. From this, we can look at the pattern and see what shape is missing from between the semicircle and the rectangle. We know that the triangle is usually in between the semicircle and the rectangle, so this is the missing shape.

Look at the image below, some patterns use the same shape but use different sizes or colours.

 

We can use a repeating pattern to find out what a certain part of the pattern may be, such as the 12th shape in the pattern below. First, we need to look at what is repeating and how often it is repeating. In the pattern below, we can see that the colours are repeating every three times. We are looking for the 12th shape and we can see that there are currently 9 in the pattern. This means that there needs to be 3 more to find the 12th shape. As we are looking to find three more and there are 3 shapes in the repeating pattern, we can look at the 3rd shape, a pink square, to find what the 12th shape will be. This means that the 12th shape will be a pink square.  

 

Find the missing shapes in each pattern below.
