CHILDREN have been getting creative and developing their maths skills at the same time for a school project.

Pupils at Pocklington Community Junior School have been taking photographs of flowers with the help of a professional photographer and looking at shapes and patterns in nature as part of the Star Project.

The children also counted petals and leaves to help develop their maths skills.

After taking the photographs the children then transferred their images onto a computer and edited them.

They kept a diary of what they learned and what they did which they took with them to an exhibition at the Pocklington Arts Centre.

Carole Fulstow, headteacher, said: “The children really enjoyed it. They learned a lot about photographs and it improved their observational skills.

“It raised their awareness of patterns and nature and it improved their IT photography skills.”

“It was quite inspiring working with a professional photographer.”
