A project with Yr.2 children from East Wickham Primary Academy during my year-long residency at the school, exploring mapping, collecting and personal histories. The students spent time finding and collecting objects from the school grounds and thinking about different ways to record them such as drawing, painting, photography, making rubbings and labelling. As well as objects we also wanted to map experiences – good and bad times at school like winning at football, losing hair bands and making and arguing with friends! The children experimented with different ways to make maps of these experiences, objects and the space around them. 2013
