We are so grateful to Emile Holba, documentary maker and photographer, who volunteered his time and resources to lead a project with some pupils from our school, as part of our growing programme of projects across the curriculum for more able and talented learners. Pupils were able to explore different aspects of photographic narrative and composition, through this hands on and practical project, grounded in scientific theory. Feedback from the pupils involved has been very positive, with all saying that they had grown in confidence. Interestingly, they all described a gradual realisation that there are other things to photograph apart from themselves, as they explored still life, architecture and nature. There is more to photography than the endless selfie! Runako described it as a journey of becoming 'less self-absorbed.' Watch this space to see some of their creations in the coming weeks.
This week in English Reception have been working on the story Supertato by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. That naughty Evil Pea captured and tied up a range of vegetables in our classrooms and set us super tricky challenges each day to complete and release a vegetable. We’ve practiced using our phonics skills to write compliments to Evil Pea, describe the vegetables that he had caught and ended the week writing to Supertato and giving him some great ideas of how to rescue the final vegetable.
