Children at Richmond Academy are reaping the benefits of a new style of classroom that allows them to break free from being stuck to their desks.
Over the past 10 months, every classroom at Richmond Academy has been re-designed and re-imagined to provide children with a more modern and flexible classroom environment.
Children making the most of flexible seating and collaboration space.
Flexible seating in each classroom allows children the opportunity to move around the class to suit the current learning activity or lesson. A child can decide to sit on the floor on a bean bag, move to the sofa, to a standing desk or maybe even just swap out their regular chair for an exercise ball – whatever they can use to make themselves more comfortable and ready to learn.
Collaboration spaces give children dedicated areas where small groups can go to work together more closely. In collaboration spaces, children are encouraged to talk to each other, swap ideas, and build the essential skills needed to be able to work with others to achieve a task.
