3C Exploring and Sketching Buildings in Brentford

Posted by rdevu on 12/01/22 at 10:02 PM

As a part of our new topic ( The City and the Countryside),we went outside to observe different buildings in Brentford where children have had great experience of drawing/sketching from direct experience. Sketching allows us to get our ideas down quickly without overthinking them, or even dismissing them before they’ve even left our brains. It allows us explore ideas and to clear our minds, brainstorm, plan things out quickly and think away from the restrictions of the computer screen.

It supports the children in slowing down, and really learning how to record what they actually see, rather than what think something looks like. Through noticing the details, the children’s understandings deepen and further questions are provoked.
