Alphabet Symmetry (Colourful letters in different sizes)

These letters can be cut out and used as a colourful choice for titles on display boards or even for bunting. Each letter shows both its rotational symmetry and its line symmetry. The letters are colour-coded so that those of the same symmetry have the same colour and background :-)
I have prepared them for easy printing in three sizes (A5, A6 and A7).<hr>As well as discussing symmetry, other nice activities to do with students include asking:
+“What maths words can be made using only letters which have exactly one line of symmetry?”
+“How many different maths words can be made (at the same time) using only one set of 26 letters?”
+“What’s the shortest sentence, which is the mathematical equivalent of The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog ?”
