This week, the Word of the Week is: sketch.

This command word is used in lots of subjects, including: Maths, Media Studies, Art and Science.

In everyday use, it means:

‘A brief written or spoken account or description, giving only basic details.’

 Things to think about this week:

  • A sketch in Art is very different from a sketch in Maths. Do you understand the difference?
  • What do examiners mean when they ask you to sketch something?
  • Do you feel comfortable using the word sketch in your written and verbal responses in class?

Ask your teachers about any of these questions this week in class!
