The new pavilion building at Trinity Primary School is an agile learning space where three teachers have embraced a new way of working together as a collaborative team.
They teach 74 primary sevens as a year group rather than having them as three separate classes.
Check out what the teachers and pupils think on the Trinity Primary page.
We have much more independence and freedom than our last classroom, you can move anywhere.
I have learned how important the learning environment is in relation to pupil engagement and enjoyment in learning within an upper primary setting.
An interesting presentation by Anne Knock was held on 28 September 2018 at Davidson’s Mains Primary School. The talk discussed the new learning spaces that have been introduced at the school and how teachers can be designers of their own learning environments.
An interesting TedX talk video about teachers as designers.

We have been working with Karen Ramsay and Lesley McMillan in our interior design team to trial our future classroom ideas at St Margaret’s RC Primary School in South Queensferry.
The staff and pupils at St Margaret’s have been really engaged in designing their own space and thinking about what would help them use their classrooms in the way they want. They have been using their experimental P6 classroom design to inform their research.
The design of the new classrooms has been led by the pupil’s suggestions.
