Class Photographers

Who We Are

We are pupils from across all year groups, who love taking pictures and using cameras. We are learning about photographic composition, the settings on cameras and how to create photographs that capture a moment or a mood. We hone our creative and technical skills when we meet once a week to take photographs and reflect on what we have produced.

What We Do

With guidance from Mr Easter and Miss Garcia, pupils develop essential skills to compose photographs for a variety of purposes. From landscapes to portrait to abstract close-ups, as Class Photographers, pupils learn to compose images in the viewfinder and use appropriate settings to capture photographs that tell a story, create an emotion or express an idea.

Pupils use cameras in the classroom and around the school and then review the images as a group to evaluate and learn from their work. They are then able to apply their skills as the nominated photographers in their classes for trips, events and any exciting activities for which their teacher may want photographs. The pupils’ pictures are then published beside reports in the monthly school newsletter or on the school’s Twitter and Instagram feed (@churchfieldsjs) to help keep parents up-to-date on the inspiring experiences children enjoy at Churchfields.

How We Make a Difference

  • Pupils provide photographs of special events for newsletters, displays and social media
  • We will be sharing our knowledge on cameras and composition, as well as our work with the rest of the school in an assembly.
  • We will create an exhibition of our photography for pupils and parents to enjoy.
