Pattern and Shape

Key stage 1 and 2: Maths, art and design, teamwork


This interactive session explores the maths behind the stunning architecture and decorative work of the Chapel. Children investigate shape and symmetry before working in groups to create their own symmetrical patterns to take back to school. This workshop offers a fun and imaginative way to study maths in the real world outside the classroom.

Upper KS2: Students work in groups to make a 3D symmetrical pattern to take back to school.
