Bringing in their favourite soft toy from home, children draw from observation, first positioning the toy so they have their preferred vantage point, then sketching in the basic shape outlines using the natural movement of the wrist before finally adding in details

Learning Objectives

  • Recognising and describe shapes in an object and start my drawing by using sketchy lines to draw these
  • Tidying up my sketched lines with a rubber
  • Completing my drawing by adding detail, colour and texture
