Autumn Term - Topic 2



We are photographers

The focus for this part of the term is computing.

We will be starting our topic by creating a pinhole camera and learning about how cameras work. The children will review photographs online, practise using a digital camera, take photos to fit a given theme, edit there photos and then select their best images to include in a shared portfolio.

Play the video below to see our photographs from this topic:


  • Consider the technical and artistic merits of a photograph

  • Use a digital camera or camera app.

  • take digital photographs
  • review, reject or pick the images they take
  • edit and enhance their photos
  • select their best images to include in a shared portfolio


In English we will be using the book 'Flotsam' by David Wiesner. We will be learning new vocabulary and writing our own description using the book to help us. 


We will also be making connections:
