New Furniture!

Well it’s all rather exciting at the moment as I have new furniture in my classroom!

After much consulting with children, other schools and the purse string holder we decided on a range of furniture of different styles, heights and shapes. The idea behind this was to have a piece of furniture to suit every conceivable learning style, task and child. And I think we’ve nailed it!

A rather empty looking classroom at the moment but pretty good looking furniture!

Going back to 2010, I was lucky enough to hear Stephen Heppell speak about “modern learning environments”. This inspired me to think about how these learning environments could be complimented by pedagogy. Hence “My-learning” was born. So, working backwards a little, I now am lucky enough to be able to match the pedagogy with the environment and I’m really looking forward to testing it out on my new class next week.

This is worth a look, by Stephen Heppell on environments:
