Seaside photography Yr 5

Swalecliffe School, along with other local schools belonging to the Coastal Alliance, are working with Turner Contemporary on a project called ‘Seaside photographed’ which aims for pupils to reflect on their experiences of growing up and living by the sea. Some Year 5 pupils were taken to the beach in order to capture their surroundings through photography. Some of the images taken across all schools will then be exhibited in a Coastal Alliance exhibition at Turner Contemporary’s Clore Gallery from the 24th May – 23rd June 2019. More to follow about this in due course.
