Bees and Tessellations

In Class AS we have been looking at bee hives and how bees  build their nests in a hexagonal structure that naturally tessellates. Miss Flower showed the class how to create a tessellating shape and then the children began their own on a beautiful sunny morning. As the photos show you can see that the children came up with some very good ideas.

We would like to ask our friends in Kafuro if they could create their own tessellations. Have they been into any houses with  tessellating floor tiles?
