In KS2 Maths, we explore number sequences. It starts in Year Three with simple patterns, like going up by 2, 3, 10, or 100. We also spot odd and even number patterns.

Understanding number sequences is like finding hidden patterns in numbers. Look at 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 – they go up by 1 each time. The pattern! So, if we add 1 to 5, we get 6. Can you spot patterns too?

How good are you at finding patterns in number sequences? Test your skills in this quiz for 7-8 year olds!

What are the next two numbers of the sequence? 3, 6, 9, 12

15, 18

13, 14

15, 17

15, 20

The numbers are increasing in 3s

2.

If you add two even numbers together the answer is always what?

An odd number

An even number

A number ending in 2

A number ending in 0

2 even numbers always make an even number but an even with an odd will make an odd number

3.

If you add two odd numbers together the answer is always what?

An odd number

An even number

A number ending in 5

A number ending in 2

Even + even = even

Even + odd = odd

Odd + even = odd

Odd + odd = even

Even + odd = odd

Odd + even = odd

Odd + odd = even

4.

What is the next number of the sequence? 20, 120, 220, 320

300

350

400

420
