Things you could include:


Important events (waiting for bus, meeting friends)

Accidental events

Arriving at School
(people you meet but don't know e.g. dog walker, Postman etc)
Turn this into a title page
Add interesting font/text to show how important certain things are on your journey.
Make the text interlock in some way to show movement from one place to another
Look at how the artists have joined landmarks together
Think about how we can measure journeys
Do we have to use miles/kilometers?
Could we use other ways of measuring our journeys?
Letters, stamps, steps, breaths, heartbeats, heart rate, birds, dog walks, bike rides, collecting items, stopping and photographing, saying words, songs, playlists...
Can you think of more?
Could you be more abstract/conceptual?
You will, for this project need pictures of landmarks or interesting buildings/places around your local environment.
Grab your phone or camera..head outside and take at least 10 shots of things you can use in your project.
Your shots must....
show clearly the things you want to photograph, make sure you get close up!

Print out or upload to school so that you can use them next lesson.
