Digit Dog is making some bunting ready for the VE Day celebrations.
He has made a pattern with his flags.
Which colour flag will he put next? How do you know?
What colour will the 10th flag be? What about the 16th flag? How did you work it out?
If he uses 30 flags, what colour will the last flag be?
Can you make a pattern like Digit Dog?
Calculating Cat has made a different pattern.
What do you notice about Calculating Cat’s pattern?
Which flag will she put next? How do you know?
What will the 12th flag be? What about the 17th? How did you work it out?
If she uses 28 flags, which flag will be last?
Look at both sets of flags.
What is the same about them? What is different?
Try making your own bunting. Make some flags and decide on a pattern. See if someone else can spot your pattern.
