# Year 2 Patterns and Sequences

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with recognising and extending patterns and sequences.

When talking about patterns and sequences, children in Year 2 should be familiar with sequences which increase or decrease in 2s, 5s or 10s and be able to extend them. They can then use this knowledge in order to work out the rule for more complex sequences and extend them also, or perhaps even begin to make their own patterns and sequences which follow a rule.
