I had been preparing to be wowed by this lego collection for weeks and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Lego is a fantastic tool for maths, engineering and spacial skills, as well as problem solving, patience, and team work.
Below – I loved this shot of the computer, with the cardboard Minecraft head looming out of the darkness. It feels like a room full of ideas and potential and creativity.
Below : I had said to a few of the mums I think I could make a separate project off the side of this, of the realities of having a newborn and/or breastfeeding whilst home educating. I love shots like this as it really does take multitasking to a whole other level , navigating the complexities of home education and having a newborn. I was in awe of the mothers I met juggling so much, so expertly at once.
Below : I love how you can almost feel the thoughts coming out of the photograph in this image.
Below : Capturing this little one at only two years old imitating his brothers ….
Below – Like with Lego, Minecraft is also a fabulous tool that can be used to help children with mathematical skills in new, fun and interesting ways.
Below – Again, I should of used a wider depth of field to keep more of this image in focus.
Below – I was very much drawn to the scene within a scene in this image. The different styles of learning going on in two seperate frames, but within one frame, and the mirrored windows of light on the two different pedagogical spaces.
Below – Like with being able to create a series of breastfeeding, home educating mums, I am pretty sure I could also create a side series of the toes of the home educated. I love capturing the feet of children whilst work is going on. Shoes off, socks off, slippers on, underneath you, on tiptoe, twisted in notes, balancing, perching ….
To me, the feet of the home educated symbolise the freedom of the educational path we have chosen, and how we create ways of focusing our minds, and making ourselves comfortable and at ease with a task.
