Coding geometric patterns for Islamic Art

posted in: Year Five News | 0

In our RE lessons this term we are learning about the Community of the Mosque; we are linking this to our Art and Computing by studying the geometric patterns used in Islamic Art and designing our own geometric patterns, including coding Scratch to draw them for us. Here are some photos of the patterns we made in our first lesson – and the code needed to create them, which includes using measure and angles. In addition to the RE, Art, Computing and Maths included in this lesson, we also showed a number of animal attitudes – Bold Badgers having innovative ideas of new patterns to make, Bounce Back Bunnies correcting errors in coding, Steadfast Squirrels persevering to find the correct angles and movements to create the desired shape and Mindful Magpies kindly helping each other.
