Class Visits

Myself and Miss Arkley have been visiting lots of schools since Thursday last week and we’re really impressed by all the work the classes have been doing. Here are a few images from some of the schools with some really inspiring ideas!


Making graphs and using key words at Hawthornden. Really great ideas for bringing together the groups ideas.

Keeping track of independent learning and the project timeline at Danderhall- a really good idea for keeping track of the impact on learning and how the pupils feel about their learning.


Loanhead have been really busy making models, doing class visits, doing class surveys and presentations, we were really impressed with all of their work!


A very professional presentation and wonderful tour of the space at Lasswade Primary. Some really exciting research for transforming their space.


Lots of great questions and a lovely scrapbook at Sacred Heart Primary. They’ve been trying out lots of different working places and positions in their classroom too.


Lots of post-it notes at Newtongrange, a great tool for sharing ideas and adding annotations to existing designs and drawings.


Innovative ideas and up-cycling at Kings Park, the classes had looked at the creative uses of colour, writeable surfaces and making floor plans.


Splitting up into task teams (finance, design etc) at St Andrews Primary, a very creative and professional idea for creating a very comprehensive group project.


Brilliant class model at Rosewell, a great way to let the class discuss elements they like and could change, also for creating an adaptable learning space.


Hawthornden Update

Primary 6B have been very busy recently designing their new learning space. We have been exploring different learning spaces around the world and using that to guide us. We each designed our own individual learning space, before sharing with a partner and creating one together. We then had to justify our design to another pair before creating one as a group of 4! We now have the challenge of making our final design, justifying our choices before choosing our furniture and fittings! We have 44,000 points to spend and still lots of work to do!

Miss Addis took a timelapse video to show us what areas of the classroom we currently use and it showed us that we only really use one area of the carpet and one seat each. We’re hoping to use more of our space when our new classroom is fitted!
