Lewis from North Molton Primary School wrote to say:
I made a pattern $5 \times 5$ and then repeated it across the board.
Thank you for telling us about it, Lewis. It's a shame you didn't send us a picture of your pattern.
Heather from Cottenham Primary School has sent in a picture of her pattern, with a description:
I drew the dots around the edge of the grid in blue, and then I did the middle one in blue.
Then I copied that pattern around the edge of the other grid, and then I did the same pattern in the very middle bit.
Well done Heather!
We would love to see any more patterns that you've created - please send them in.
