While we have been learning about the 2x table and multiplying numbers by 2, we started to make links between that and doubling.
Miss O'Hara showed us 3 dots of paint on one half of a page, when she folded the page there were 6 dots! We saw that double 3 is 6! We linked this to our 2x table learning: "2 lots of 3 is 6" and 2 x 3 = 6.
We decided to explore symmetry some more, and we learned that a symmetrical pattern is something that is the same on both sides. We learned about vertical lines of symmetry and tried lots of different activities to help us remember our learning. The hardest challenge was colouring a symmetrical pattern. We used mirrors to help us!
