Maths and Art Silk Painting banners

You might think that it would be difficult to combine maths and art but actually there are lots of possibilities.  During Arts Week at Streatham Wells Primary School, Year 3 looked at artists who have done just that and used their maths shapes to make some amazing banners.  Each table had a simple shape and each pupil on the table was asked to make a design using this shape.  The table then combined their designs to make the finished silk banners.  Who knew that circles, triangles, squares, triangles and hexagons could look so good!
