Welcome to the Room 8 blog for 2013.
We talked about having spaces in our class for working by ourselves, in pairs and in small or larger groups. The students decided where to put the furniture and how it should all go together.
We have a selection of thin tall tables, larger low tables, chairs, stools, cushions and a bean bag.
By the afternoon, the students had placed our furniture in the class where we think it might work. We know that we may have to move things around as we go - to suit our learning.
We decided on a comfy reading corner with a bean bag and cushions, some tall tables around a maths area, some tall tables together for a small group and some tall tables by the window for individuals or pairs.
