As part of the Year 3/4 Harry Potter unit, my students have been creating many different artworks using a wide range of materials. As an extension activity and a chance to put all the knowledge and skills gained through art lessons to use, I decided to give them an independent, unguided task in which they had to draw what they thought the Hogwarts castle looked like. I gave them a drawing I found on the Internet to use as a guide and they were encouraged to add and change elements of the drawing to make their own unique version. The students who attempted the artwork were particularly encouraged to include detail in their artwork, use light and shadow and think about space and positioning in their artwork.

Well done to these clever (and brave!) students of mine...
