The theme at school this week is ‘zoo animals.’ Yesterday at school we shared the book, ‘Dear Zoo’ by Rod Campbell. We then talked about and described the animals in the book. We looked closely at the animal features such as skin patterns, shape and size.
The children then went on a ‘Safari Hunt’ in the Secret Garden looking for ‘hidden’ wild animals. Once they’d each found an animal, they used them to complete an observational drawing of it. The children produced some fantastic art work, looking super closely at the animals and drawing all the details.
Maybe you could have a go at drawing your favourite animal, using either a toy animal, a picture from a book or the computer to help you. Remember to look closely at all the features and try to draw all the details.
