This week LS2 have been learning about Sketch notes. What we have learnt about them is that they use more pictures than words to symbolise things and are a more creative way of making notes. They also help you stay focused to what you are listening to because why write a lot of words and be real bored and not listen when you can draw lots of pictures and not fall asleep because they're so fun to make. We started off with a topic we knew about, which was Questions and how they help us, then moved on to a topic we are learning about as our Kiwi sport with Andi, which is Run Jump Throw and then moved on to a topic we needed to research, which is Rio and the Olympics. We learnt that you can use a variety of objects to make a Sketch note, such as Stick Figures, Bullet points that can be stars circles, even bullets! To make titles we learnt to make the letters into block letters, or circle the title, and make it the biggest thing on the page. We know that our sketch not doesn't have to make sense to anyone apart from us, because, if you can't use you're own notes, then what are you going to do? We will probably use this form of notes from now on but it's fine by me because I know I'd rather draw a few pictures than write 10 pages of words for notes!
