Talented Tessellations in Year 4

In Art, we have been exploring geometric shapes. We have been comparing and classifying geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes.
  Along with this, we have explored tessellation. A tessellation is a repeating pattern that fills a space without overlapping. Tessellated patterns are used in many ways. Often, Roman homes and buildings were decorated and built using tessellated patterns. Tessellating patterns and floral designs are also commonly found in Islamic art.

Please see some of the amazing tessellations that Birch class have created below.

"Wow, tessellation is so cool. Look at all those amazing patterns." David, Birch.

"It is really important to concentrate when drawing straight lines with a ruler. You need to be careful so that the ruler doesn't move and you have the same pattern all the time." Medeea, Birch. 

"I love art. It is my favorite subject and I love creating colourful patterns." Happiness, Birch.

Well done Birch class. All of these patterns look amazing. You are all brilliant artists of Year 4!
