Terrific Tessellation

Year 6 are enjoying learning about geometric patterns within Islamic art. During our initial lessons, we have looked at how these patterns were used throughout the early Islamic civilization on tiles, building, ceramics and carpets to name but a few. This week we focused on tessellation, which is an arrangement of shapes closely fitted together in a repeated pattern without gaps or overlapping. 

We are looking forward to creating our own tile pattern, choosing our colour palette and carving our design into a lino sheet. We will then use this to print a repeating pattern on a large sheet of paper.
