Wrapping Paper

We've been working together in maths to make our own 
wrapping paper.
After looking closely at some commercial papers, we discovered that the patterns are sequenced and often show slides, turns and flips!
We chose 1,2,or 3 shapes for our paper and decided on our pattern sequence.

Have you ever made your own wrapping paper for a special occasion?

    1. Dear Mrs N-C
      Thanks for your comment. We thought wrapping paper would be a great way of doing a Christmas activity in a useful context!
      We'll be sure to visit your blog when we are back at school after the summer holidays.
