Earlier in 2019 our year three children took part in the Steve McQueen Tate Project. The children had their photograph taken by a team of specially trained Tate photographers. We were one of the 1,340 schools who took part in the project.
Now these class photos are on display at the Tate Britain in a single large-scale installation, capturing tens of thousands of Year 3 pupils in a milestone year in their development. On Tuesday, Myself and Ms. Newby attended the private view with the artist Steve Mc Queen. He gave a wonderful and inspiring speech to a large group of teachers from London. He stressed the importance of providing rich, creative learning experiences for all of our children and seemed really proud of the work on show.
The exhibition is now on at the Tate Britain until May 3rd 2020. I urge you to take your children along so they can see this vast new art work. It is one of the most ambitious portraits of children
ever undertaken in the UK and offers us a glimpse of the capital’s future and a hopeful portrait of a generation to come.
