L.O – To be able to sketch a drawing.

L.O – I can talk about the artist Karla Gerard and give reasons why I like/dislike her work.


Children have a go at sketching houses in Hall Green – possibly a view of Petersfield road. Use the presentation to show homes in the local area. Discuss the detail in each picture.  Home learners - Children can draw their own home.


Introduce the artist: Karla Gerard


Show her works using from the presentation.. Using these pictures discuss them and the artist’s style.

Ask the children for their opinions about the work.  What do you like? Can you explain why, by using the word because? What media do you think she has used to create this art work? Teachers annotate around the side what their opinion is and keep reinforcing the use of because.
