Lesson Background: This term, we are learning to write narratives. We are reading "Charlotte's Web" by E.B. White as a means of exploring effective narrative writing structures, tricks and techniques.
Lesson Materials (per student):
1 sheet A4 black cardboard
1 lead pencil
coloured oil pastels (pink, red, white, black, greens, blues)
1. We looked at some pictures of piglets and read the opening chapter to "Charlotte's Web".
2. Mrs Baker showed us step-by-step how to go about drawing, colouring, then outlining our pictures, focusing on spacing (e.g. this is half way down the page, and 3 finger-spaces wide), and adding different shades to make our pictures more realistic.
