If you are a teacher in a primary school, you know how important it is to make sure the children stay engaged. You can do this easily by decorating the classroom walls with bright colours and interesting characters. One cost effective way to do this is by using a range of wallpaper brands.
Wallcoverings for a primary school classroom can consist of a range of the pupils artwork, which will likely cover large parts of the walls. Other ideas can include letters of the alphabet and numbers for those younger children who are still learning how to read, write and count. However, if there is still space, or you want a good base then consider wallpaper.
There are a range of wallpaper brands that offer patterns that are aimed at children. They include colourful designs, pictures of animals, outer space or even cartoon characters. You will be spoilt for choice and there is sure to be something to suit all tastes. For wallcovering you can also use fabrics, if you need curtains or blinds across the windows then fabric is the ideal choice.
Chairs and tables
For a great, functioning classroom then you will need chairs and tables for the pupils to sit and work at. You can make these interesting and fun by having them in a range of colours, and it is a great way to teach children about primary and secondary colours. If your school doesn’t run to the budget of a whole new refurb, then you can paint the tables and chairs you currently have for a fraction of the cost of new furniture.
Cloakroom and bathroom areas
If your classroom has its own cloakroom (or even if it is a shared space with other classes) you can brighten up the area by marking each individual hanging space for each pupil. The child then knows where to hang their coats and bags each day. To do this you can ask the child to draw a self portrait and use that to personalise their space.
As for the bathroom areas, these need to be easy to clean, and so vinyl flooring and tiled walls is likely to be preferable, but you can still choose lively colours to make the space unique.
