This maths resource on repeating patterns focuses on the 2D shapes, triangle and rectangle. There are eight different coloured repeating patterns using both of these shapes. Pupils are asked to identify the pattern and extend it by saying what comes next.
The same eight patterns are included in the resource, except they are blank. This allows the teacher to give the pupil a blank equivalent to a coloured pattern and ask them to repeat the pattern. Alternatively, pupils can be asked to colour the blank patterns to make their own patterns.
