Young Engineers' Club
We are running a Young Engineers' Club for children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 (KS2) after school for 6 weeks starting after Christmas 2019. The club can only run if enough children sign up and places are limited to 20, offered on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like your KS2 child to join this club, please click on the link below to book and pay for their place direct with STEM Kids Ltd. The following slide show which was shown to parents and children in our assembly on Friday tells you a little more about the club. Please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
In Photography Club the children were introduced to the basics of Photography, the basics of how a camera works, composition and light. In the main the Club concentrated on what makes a good photograph including, cropping, texture, leading lines, interest, beauty and the rule of thirds.
The Club used still life set ups and artificial light to explore these ideas and then also nature and natural lighting to further develop their skills and ideas.
The children were amazing and very open to receiving constructive criticism of their work as the weeks progressed. I was so happy to see their enthusiasm at improving and how well they took on board instruction and advice about their work.
They constantly tried to improve their photographs using their learnt skills of; reviewing, deleting (a VERY important skill) and re-taking until happy with the results. They learnt to pause, look and plan their imagery before pressing the shutter. A huge contrast to the first week where it seemed like they were using their cameras like machine guns and taking a dozen images before even thinking about what they were doing.
One week the children spent time adjusting and enhancing their photographs using Adobe Photoshop, using just a few techniques to improve the contrast, colour and crop of the images before the photos were sent to print at a professional lab.
At the last session, as the exhibition prints had already been produced, the children learnt about long exposures and they played with torch patterns in the dark.
It was a pleasure to invite the families of the children to come to last session and enjoy an exhibition of the children's chosen photographs printed and mounted on the walls of the school.
