Pupils needing extra support: Some pupils may need help Creating an image of something on a surface, like paper, using lines but also other marks and shading…. a skull with a level of accuracy. Encourage all pupils to try to draw the skull with minimal help so they can develop their skills. Keep reassuring pupils and remind them that they are not trying to make an exact copy. If any pupils are really struggling to draw the skull, they may need a pre-drawn A mark on paper that can be straight, curved, heavy, light, short, long, hand-drawn or printed…. drawing to use for the later stage (you can easily find these by searching for ‘skull line drawings’ on the web).
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be able to draw the skull more easily. These pupils might research different skull patterns and designs on the web to help them create more intricate designs. Emphasis should be placed on creating original designs inspired by what they find, not copying them.
