Only 4 weeks into the term and Year 4 pupils are beginning to really develop their drawing skills. This example shows that the pupil is aware of shapes and tries to improve this in a second drawing.

Drawing two objects together
Drawing two objects next to each other will make children think about size and proportion. For differentiation you could have two simple objects near each other or touching for a more challenging experience.

It does take time to achieve this but patience and practise is pretty much all you need.
