Year 6 Photography Project

Over the past few weeks, our Year Six children have undertaken a photography course designed to teach them primarily about composition and the fun ways to capture their creativity.

They have learnt the basics of camera mechanics, fun effects and most importantly, how to take a great photograph! To finish the course the children were given 19 challenges to complete during a Celebration Day using all the techniques they had acquired whilst completing the course.

Your child has learnt how to produce photos worthy of a pro! Here are some of the amazing images captured from the children.

Many of the images produced will be put on to canvas for display in the coming weeks. Well done Year 6!

Here are some examples:

A huge congratulations to all our children who took part in the Cross Country event at Woodford Halse last week. They were fantastic!

The challenging event involved over 900 pupils from primary schools across Northamptonshire. Our runners showed real resilience as they coped with the mud, hills, beck and more in their races!

The final results for the competition were as follows, with our children doing superbly!
