Staff Workshop - Classroom spaces

the-learning-crowd were delighted to run a workshop for all teacher at the St Mary's Church of England Primary Academy, Northamptonshire, recently.

Having just taken delivery of ten brand classrooms, they are one of the few schools who have not rushed into buying new furniture and replace exactly what they had.

The workshop covered lots of areas and discussed all the key influences, based on research and practice, that impact learning environments and the academic performance of students. 

On a more basic level, staff also explored what they had previously had in their rooms - with many wondering why it was there.

Great conversations, great fun -and a fab group of people!  We are REALLY looking forward to seeing what they eventually buy to furnish their rooms along with the reasons why they selected it!!
