Stonecroft Day Nursery - Projects

The language of photography

I take my own pictures of the nursery.

Photography enables young children to explore and communicate their ideas about the world; their interests, feelings, fascinations, questions preoccupations and more.

Over the summer term, children at Stonecroft nursery school have spent time exploring their environment through photography. With repeated opportunities to use the camera, their interests and lines of enquiry have emerged.

Children are naturally curious; they use the camera to look from different viewpoints - to look up, down, in and through. They focus the camera on details, objects, spaces, places and those important to them. They often photograph their feet.

The children spent time at the computer looking at and describing their photographs before choosing the ones they liked most. These are some of the photographs the children chose as the ones they like best. 

The children’s photographs are fascinating and full of surprises. Through the children’s photographs, we get to see the world through their eyes.
