this term’s Photography and Maths project

We have now come to the end of the first term of our partnership with Fotosynthesis, funded by Walcot Foundation and Awards for All, exploring Maths through Photography. 4 classes took part in activities involving precise measurement and learning about shape. The children made pinhole cameras, took photographs with them, developed their photos in a pop-up darkroom in school and discovered shapes all around them using digital cameras. The project worked with classes of year 3. The children really enjoyed the project and we are currently compiling case study and evaluation on the project to see how the work has impacted on their maths learning. From February Fotosynthesis will work with younger children (Reception) using Photography for literacy learning in some of our schools.
