Upper Key Stage 2

Year 6 Photography

Through developing their photography skills, children cover useful artistic concepts in a new context, looking at: composition, colour, light, abstract images and underlying messages. By familiarising themselves with new photography artists, children can gain a new perspective on the way they look at the people and objects around them, capturing and presenting images in different ways.
