The focus of Discover is to give the children an opportunity to identify patterns in a variety of contexts. The main image is of Matilda building sandcastles with an ABB pattern using two shapes. There are several ABB patterns embedded in the scene for children to spot.
The focus of Share is to guide the children how to continue a more complex pattern. Encourage children to describe the pattern by naming each item out loud and discuss in which direction it should continue. Draw children’s attention to what Dexter is saying and encourage them to identify the repeats and verbalise what the core is.
