Discussion points for teachers

1. Help Priya and Ted to work out what the next four 2D shapes in the pattern should be.
Discuss which 2D shapes are in the pattern on the bunting. Discuss what the pattern is and how we work out what the pattern is. Discuss which 2D shape will come next after the red circle. Discuss which 2D shape will come second, third and fourth after the red circle.
The next four 2D shapes in the pattern should be a green triangle, yellow rectangle, blue square and a red circle.

2. Help Priya and Ted to work out what the next four 3D shapes in the pattern are. Discuss which 3D shapes the items look like. Discuss what the pattern is.
