We will be exploring elements of symmetry and transformation including translation, rotation and reflection. We will be doing lots of art to show these elements; printing, painting, mosaics... We will create and talk about repeating patterns/shapes, symmetrical patterns/shapes and patterns/shapes that rotate clockwise and anticlockwise through quarter, half and full turns. We will make tessellations and look at enlarging/reducing shapes.

Learning Area:
