1. Flexible seating
Gone are the days when primary school pupils were confined to desks organised in neat rows. Today, classrooms have flexible seating with options such as bean bags, mini sofas, mats and rugs, as well as collaborative tables with chairs.
Why it's important: Flexible seating arrangements allow children to sit where they feel most comfortable and to move and change seating based on a given project or activity. Benefits include an increase in communication and concentration, plus a greater sense of community.
