Reception Repeating Patterns Game

Teacher Specific Information

This Reception Repeating Patterns Game will help children continue simple AB patterns. Encourage children to identify the next shapes in a simple repeating pattern. They need to drag the next set in the pattern from the left to complete the pattern on the right. Children may wish to recreate their own patterns on paper or using objects.

Development Matters

40 – 60 Months
(MS-13) Uses familiar objects and common shapes to create and recreate patterns and build models.

Early Learning Goal
(ELG12) Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
