In art the grade 5/6’s have been making tessellations. It was exciting when we started to make them… but also very hard because when we got the square we didn’t know what it was for! In the process of making these, we had to work very carefully. The drawing and cutting out was the hardest. The easiest was at the start where we got to make the actual thing, we wrote part then turned it into trap. At the end they look AMAZING!! All of the colours combined look brilliant.

How to make tessellations

  1. cut out a square 7cm x 7cm
  2. write PART one letter in each corner (P top L, A top R, R bottom L and T bottom R)
  3. draw a simple line from left to right across the square
  4. draw a bit more of a spiky or curvy line top to bottom of the square
  5. cut out the lines you have drawn.
  6. Arrange the 4 pieces so when put together the letters spell TRAP and sticky tape to make your template.
  7. Trace around your template 16 times using 2, 3 or 4 different colours
  8. Cut carefully around all of your traced shapes.
  9. Arrange on a white piece of paper
