In June, artist and project director Jane Bailey worked with Class 1 at Trythall School on an immersive research project including a swim in the pool and some underwater photography. The children started by creating a fantastic list of questions about the pool. After their pool swim the children came back the next day for a talk from Angie Butler of ‘Friends of Jubilee Pool’ and did their own detective work about the pool’s past, each annotating an archive photo of the pool with observations and questions. Back in the classroom they did online research and added this to the larger scale versions of their research boards. Some of this research work will be shown as part of the Jubilee Pool timeline in the show at the Exchange Gallery.
