As you go through KS2 Maths, you'll explore cool things about number sequences! Not just the ones that go up, but also those that go down, like when numbers decrease by 25 each time. You'll even dive into odd and even numbers and see how they make patterns when you add or subtract them.

Finding patterns is like solving puzzles with numbers. Take this sequence: 20, 15, 10, 5. They're going down by 5 each time! What comes next? Let's subtract 5 from 5, and ta-da! The next number is 0.

Test your pattern skills with this fun quiz designed for 8-9 year olds. Ready for the challenge?
