At Gateway, we work hard to ensure that, through our broad and creative curriculum, all the children are given a myriad of opportunities to achieve in many different areas of their learning. Our hugely successful annual Take One Picture project is a fine example of that. Not only does it give the pupils the opportunity to lead their learning, but it also gives our talented staff the chance to pick up on the children’s interests and further enhance their investigative learning skills.
As many of you will know, the project is nationwide, led by the National Gallery, and many schools from across the country choose to get involved. For the first time last year, Mrs Mock submitted some of our work to the National Gallery and Gateway School’s exhibits were chosen out of many entries to make up part of the National Gallery exhibition. I was so very proud to attend a private viewing yesterday evening with Mrs Mock and Mrs Izard to look at all the chosen exhibits from many schools across the country. Please read the press release that we have been delighted to share with the local press.
As you can imagine, this exhibition has excited us all about next year’s Take One Picture project. The entries from other schools provided some great creative ideas and we enjoyed speaking to other teachers involved in the project across the country. It was a truly inspirational evening and I am already looking forward to our Take One Picture project next year.
Have a great weekend.
