Extended learning


Photography skills will be taught as a skill in KS3 through timetabled Art and Design lessons and homework tasks. Pupils will use photography in order to gather resources for their art making as well as investigate photography as the main process and outcome.


See KS3 page for Art and Design.

Supporting your child

What you can do at home:

Encourage your child to investigate the Snapseed app on their iPad. There are loads of YouTube tutorials on creative uses of this app.


Beyond school iPad, none is essential. However, if your child shows an interest, you may want to consider purchasing some fun clip-on lenses for iPad and Smartphone cameras or some prisms to shoot through. If they are really keen, consider a second hand DSLR camera. We always recommend a Canon 450d; there are lots of second-hand cameras on MVB website.
