* Put a label on the back of shared cameras recording which pupil took which number shot * Set up a display in the classroom and add some photographs as you progress through the project.

* Put some positive criticism labels beside the pictures to ensure that the project is a learning process * Encourage the children to be imaginative and take unusual shots or shots from different angles and perspectives
