Sketchbooks are great places for pupils to make visual notes. Making visual notes can help to slow down looking and thinking, and give space for pupils to process information and make it their own. This can be really useful when you are exploring a particular topic or artist. Visual notes also provide a useful way for pupils to revisit / recap ideas later on in a project.
Making visual notes is a skill in itself and you need to give pupils time to practice new skills. This resource introduces you to the different ways of making visual notes; it’s important to introduce children to as many options as possible so that they can find the ones which work best for them as individuals.
