Easter is a great time to practise pattern and symmetry. These colourful resources are ideal for a creative 'shape and space' mini-topic. Introduce the concept of symmetry with the 'Symmetrical Or Not?' activity (left). The three Easter-egg-based interactives below allow pupils to explore symmetrical patterns, with either 1 or 2 lines of symmetry. Additional printables are split into two types: Crazy Symmetry Egg Creature cutouts, and a Patchwork Symmetry dice-roll game, where pupils colour in sections according to the dice number (differentiated sheets include either 1 line or 2 lines of symmetry).
