Jessop Primary Reception – literacy through photography

This week the 2 Reception classes at Jessop Primary School began their 4 week project with Fotosynthesis, the photography experts, to explore how they can create stories through images and photography. The children learnt lots of techniques: framing, close ups, understanding when to use landscape or portrait. They based a role play on a single photo they were given and took a series of images to display the action and emotions from the image. After lots of discussion and great team work the children sat down and wrote key words from their stories, ideas and thoughts – lots of writing going on after a varied and stimulating session. Next week there will be more story development and use of cameras in the classroom.
