Sketchbooks Made Simple!

Get the most out of sketchbooks in your school

3pm – 4.30pm, Thursday 30th April 2020


For Key Stage 2 pupils, the use of sketchbooks is a National Curriculum requirement. Used effectively, sketchbooks can be embedded across the curriculum and can allow children to focus their thoughts, think creatively and reflect on their learning. Using a sketchbook can be beneficial for children of all ages.

This session will explore how sketchbooks can be developed as a rich resource, for recording, researching and documenting pupils’ ideas and inspiration.  It is designed to give you the confidence to develop the use of sketchbooks in your own classroom.

Delegates will:

Make their own sketchbook
Explore ideas and strategies to use sketchbooks to support subjects across the curriculum
Experimenting with mark making
