My name is Wendy Hobbs and I am an artist and HLTA providing art lessons as PPA cover in my local primary school. I work closely with the class teachers to provide Art and Design lessons that fit the topics and curriculum aspects that they are covering, designing and illustrating my own cross-curricular resources for class use. Those are the resources you will find in my shop, tried, tested and refined through class use. Are there any that would enhance your classroom experience?

Early finisher / free draw art worksheet based on circles

(1)
Primary school art worksheet to use at the end of a lesson as children start to finish their work. We refer to it as Free Draw, but it still provides guidance and structure whilst allowing the children to use their imagination. Pupils fill in the circles with detailed drawings of items that are circular in shape, e.g. pizza, dough nut, eyeball, apple, etc. Sheets can be stuck into pupils sketch books and added to at each session as time allows. The task is fun but encourages observation, lateral thinking and drawing skills. Suitable for all levels of ability. Also useful in a unit on 2D shapes.

Print onto card and either, attach base of camel’s face to a headband made from a ring of card so it doesn’t cover the child’s face, or attach to a stick so it can be held up when needed.
