Art lesson KS1 – The Tiger Who Came to Tea

What's included?

PDF lesson plan for KS1 art, based on The Tiger Who Came to Tea

Key Stage



Years 1-2


Drawing can be a daunting task for many children, so it is vitally important that their first experiences are filled with awe, wonder and a good sprinkling of fun.

Drawing can link to many parts of the curriculum or can be a standalone art lesson, where learners can develop a wide range of skills. Inspiration can come from the children’s imagination, or they can observe the world around them. In this session we’ll look at a wide range of ideas to develop drawing in Key Stage 1 linked to the Chinese Year of the Tiger, and the beloved children’s book, The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

What they’ll learn

  • To use a wide range of drawing tools to create different marks
  • To draw with confidence from imagination and from observation
  • Begin to control the types of marks made by a range of media
  • To describe the work they create and the work of others
  • To use a sketchbook to explore new ideas and experiences
