I've been very lucky for the last few years in that I've had my own lab/classroom. This means that as well as avoiding being a mobile teacher (with all the delayed starts to lessons and wondering where that piece of paper went that comes with that), I've been able to add things to the walls and ceilings to get pupils interested. I decided today to take a load of photos and share them. Sorry some are a bit blurry, I was using my mobile phone... Is there anything I need to add?
|Big cupboards at the back of the room. One has different textbooks in that|
pupils are welcome to use to help during lessons.
|The Learning Wall. As donated by @teachingofscience. My year 12 and 13 are working on the Four Bs currently. Year 10 love the Carl Sagan quote.|
|The Twitter Challenge. A great plenary to really get pupils thinking. I have pre-printed grids to help them keep count, and I've found that higher ability pupils like to try and get 140 characters exactly.|
