Spotlight on Photography

As part of our Monday Afternoon Project (MAP), a group of students started their photography sessions. MAP gives them the opportunity to experiment with a professional camera and learn basic photography skills. This week, they concentrated on focusing the lens to achieve close up shots. The topic set by art teacher, Kinga was ‘nature’, it provided a great excuse to get outdoors and explore the flowers and shrubs surrounding our local river Wandle. Students enjoyed the fresh air and the freedom of being outdoors, coupled with learning a new skill. The results are quite beautiful and illustrate that photography is a great medium for students to express their creativity.

There is a lovely feeling at school, it is always very positive, warm and welcoming – Parent
