This year I am very lucky to have 22 littlies to create a welcoming and inspiring space for.
Every Summer I spend ages thinking about how to set up my room and as a starting point I usually focus on where the kids spend most of their time looking, centre their desks and position the most valuable learning resources in their eye line...well…as far as I can!
So come on in and have a nose around…
I'm lucky to have a lovely entrance area we call 'The Den'- the children come in to the room here and walk past our sink area and the library/ small group area.
As you come through my second door you will notice straight ahead a row of windows with the whiteboard and SMARTboard next to them. It is here where I try to focus the children's main learning prompts so that they can be constantly referred to. We are huge fans of Ros Wilson at our school and so the VCOP display is a must!
As we move around in a clockwise direction you will spot my desk and shelves- I love my floral baskets- they hide a multitude of sins in such a pretty fashion!
Then we have our class Word Wall- we have a massive focus on SPaG throughout our school but are very conscious that it isn't just an 'add-on' isolated lesson.
I LOVE my Numeracy wall and resource base- the children have really taken to the interactive element of the working wall and often solve the puzzles or activities in their independent time.
Next up is my very outdated and- yawn- slow computer bank!!! However awful I think these comps are the kiddies love them!
The next area is our Rules and Rewards area- we do whole class 'Rainbow Drops' where the kiddies have to work as a team to earn drops which build up to a big whole class treat such as a DVD and popcorn!
In the very corner is the supply area and my HUGE walk in cupboard- it is a life saver!!
Thanks for coming and feel free to pop by any time to see what our latest learning and displays look like.
