This week we are going to focus on our drawing skills and use our 'Good, Better and Best' approach to drawing sunflowers. By the end of this week you should have drawn 3 versions of your sunflower and should be able to see a marked improvement from your first to your third. 

  • What do you already know about sunflowers? 
  • Can you count how many petals you can see on a sunflower? 
  • What do you think a sunflower will need to grow? 
  • How tall do you estimate a sunflower can grow? 
  • What are the different colours that you see on a sunflower? 
  • Can you create a colour chart showing these colours? 
  • Draw three different sunflowers and pick one aspect to improve on each time. 
  • Can you follow the video to draw your final sunflower
