Create a positive physical learning space

Most teachers will receive a very small budget, if one at all, to personalise their classroom and create an engaging and vibrant learning space. Making a classroom engaging does not have to cost an arm and a leg. Teachers need to be creative and resourceful when creating a learning space on a budget and there are a number of things that can be done.

Create a learning space

There are a number of things that can be done to create an engaging learning space:

• A dash of colour can make anything interesting! A can of spray paint adds colour to just about anything and will make most things look like new. Just make sure that the paint can be used around children.

• Take advantage of the many number of free, downloadable templates that are available.

• Use print shop programs to create professional looking resources.

• Check out clearance sales, bargain bins and second-handstores for ‘cheap and cheerful’ resources.

Well organised learning space

Having a well organised learning space will contribute to how well a classroom is run. Click each button below to learn more about the characteristics of a well-organised environment.

• Welcoming

• Responsive to learners and their needs

• Consistent and predictable

• Well-resourced and maintained

• Interesting and engaging

Physical layout

It is essential that the physical layout of your learning space is conducive with the students’ learning. Click each layout type to learn more.

• U Shaped -An ideal set up that is great for group discussions and presentations.

• V-shaped -This is a great set up that allows students to work together easily and face the centre of the room.

• Semi-circle - An ideal set up that will allow students to see everything that is going on at the front of the classroom.

• Four-square -This set up is great for students working in small groups especially when undertaking team building activities or enabling competitions between the groups.

• Simple -This set up is ideal for standard classroom learning.

Organising the room

When organising the room, it is important to arrange the space to allow easy access to each area of the room. Breaking up the space with clear pathways and clear play spaces allows for more focused and productive play. In an older learners’ classroom, having access to the whiteboard or main focus point of the room is essential.

Having small rows of desks, angled towards the front of the room allows students access that area of the room without having that sense of being at the back of the classroom.

Providing ‘break out’ areas for different types of activities to take place is also helpful. For example, you may have a low level, large table with cushions scattered around it for smaller children to work in small group activities or to do some reading. Having a carpeted area will provide space for the attendance roll to be called or for classroom reading activities to take place.

If you have students with special access requirements such as a wheelchair, you must ensure that the student has equal access to the learning environment and is easily accessible.
