Last year, the artist Steve McQueen invited every Year 3 pupil in London to have their photograph taken by a team of specially trained Tate photographers.
These class photos were brought together into a single large-scale installation, capturing tens of thousands of Year 3 pupils in a milestone year in their development.
“There’s an urgency to reflect on who we are and our future… to have a visual reflection on the people who make this city work. I think it’s important and in some ways urgent.”
St Michael’s took part in this fantastic project and they went to visit the Tate Britain to go and see the exhibition. They loved seeing their photo on the wall and they enjoyed the booklet that they were given to complete. The children were also given the opportunity to give the largest cheer they could master, which was the highlight of their visit!
The exhibition is free to visit, with families warmly welcomed at weekends and in the holidays.
