"The new furniture layout had a massive impact on the children and their learning."
- Andrew McGregor, Head Teacher, Salehurst CoE Primary School
The Reception classroom was worn out, and so were the teachers by the end of the day. Over one weekend, the old furniture was replaced with a brand new layout, divided into interest areas. The staff were amazed what a difference the new environment had on their children.
"It's so amazing seeing our classroom transformed," says Reception class teacher, Sian Rice. "Getting the environment right is absolutely fundamental to the children's learning and wellbeing. If you get it right the children will be calm, they'll be engaged, they'll be focused and they'll gain so much out of their time there."
