The playground is an important place for friendships to be formed, but also where fallouts can happen. During a topic on friendship we decided to make a wall display showing a happy playground. This led to many informative discussions about what happened in our playground. Problems were discussed openly and solutions suggested. We even made our own Playground Charter.
Admittedly if you look closely at the wall display you will find some strange shaped children and a plethora of bins! (the yellow shapes) It also has a Disney like quality, although the chirping birds are yellow, not blue. I believe that displays in the classroom should show the children’s work, and in a wall display like this each child can contribute something. The only thing I feel strongly about is spelling, which of course should be correct for any wall display.
