Making your classroom decorations creative and inspiring.
A classroom has to fill many roles, from being a place to house students, to a place to inspire learning, creativity, and focus. It should encourage an environment and culture of growth.
To achieve a learning oasis for both students and teachers, there are a number of decorative ideas which can make a classroom feel like a space students want to be in. From customisable charts to pictures, displays and colour themes, there are plenty of ways to inspire your students. Keep in mind that the room needs to have a degree of organisation and a focus on the educational themes for the age group.
Top Tip: Choose a theme for the classroom to tie it all together e.g., forest, sunshine, jungle, sport, travel, or space!

Classroom decoration ideas that will help your surroundings shine.
There are many elements to the design of a room and it’s up to each teacher to choose which elements are the most important for their classroom. Of course, the budget is different for every teacher, so picking out the ones most accessible to you is necessary. Many of these can be crafted together or created for free on Adobe Express.
Below are our top ideas of what could help liven up the learning environment:

- Transform the classroom with peel and stick wallpaper.
- Display student work on a bulletin board or a clothesline!
- Design affirmation display posters (use inspirational quote signs from Adobe Express).

- Build a chill out zone for kids to get some much-needed space and quiet.
- Create seating charts to add some flow to your learning space.
- Add as many (non-toxic!) plants as you can, to bring fresh air and spark plant-related conversations!
- Select your lighting carefully, avoid too bright of a light as this can cause sensory overload and fatigue.
- Create British Sign Language content (for example, make a poster of the BSL alphabet) to practise inclusivity.
