As part of their enterprise project, Reception chose to design and make their own bracelets.
We learnt about repeating patterns, and after exploring pattern through shapes and colours, we applied our new knowledge to our bracelet designs.
First, the children looked carefully at the choices of beads which they had available to use in their bracelets. Then, the children used pattern strips to plan their patterns, deciding whether they wanted to use an ‘AB’, ‘ABC’, or ABBA pattern.
They drew their patterns carefully and selected the colours they wanted to use. After this, the children used their designs to make their bracelets.
We have made special gift editions of our bracelets and we are very excited to sell them on our enterprise stall ‘The Occasion Station’ along with our unique gift cards for all occasions next week.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!
