50 ways to improve emotional wellbeing

10- Photos

Part of creating a classroom where children feel safe and cared for and ready to learn is to create connections between staff and children and between class members. My digital camera is always by my side ready to photograph the class both on special occasions and as we work together day to day. The children love to see photos of themselves and their peers. We have a board where are current photos are stuck up weekly, I use photos as my screen saver on the laptop so the children can see them on the screen, I make photostories to share with parents and children and I create photo albums. Some are of special events and trips, some are where we store our weekly photos and each child has a little book with their own photos in. All year myself and the amazing team I work with stick photos into these and at the end of the year each child is allowed to take their own personal photo album home.
