- To create and form shapes using soft modelling wire
Pupils should be taught:
- To improve their mastery of Art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay]
Pupils needing extra support: Might struggle to form the basic shape of the fish and so may need additional help and support from the teacher or TA.
Less able pupils could be paired with a competent partner to help them form their shapes.
You could provide pupils with the basic shape of the fish and let them make the tail and head pieces, fins and eyes.
Pupils working at greater depth: Might progress to covering their fish with PVA glue and tissue paper.
