Pattern seeking

Pupils observe, measure and record events and systems when carrying out pattern seeking enquires. They also collect and interpret data from secondary sources. They make observations and conduct surveys where the variables can’t easily be controlled for practical or ethical reasons

Across the year groups, there are lesson suggestions for developing the skill of Pattern seeking from Year 1-11.
