Our Wonderwall graphics can completely change how your teaching spaces work as this giant world map wall graphic demonstrates at Caludon Castle School.
Caludon Castle has a lot of long corridors that are completely bare. We were approached by the school to improve one particular corridor space within the Humanities Faculty. A large-scale world map perfectly combined the high impact that we needed and a teaching and learning focus, which would elevate it from a pretty picture to a useful installation.
The wall art was designed to reflect the school's colours and a bold but simple quiz was included to encourage student engagement. The entire graphic was applied to the wall using a speciality wall vinyl and is protected with a scuff-resistant coating. As part of the project we were asked to install a series of student leadership displays at key intersections within the school (pictured)
The new displays have been a great success and have attracted positive comments from both students and staff. The scale of the large map graphic needs to be seen to appreciate the impact it has on the space. The headteacher, M Marr, was full of praise for the completed result and is delighted that she has gained a new teaching space in the 'map corridor!' This installation is set to have a long-term impact, with a cost benefit that far exceeded expectations.
"The map wall has gone down a storm. There has been lots of 'wow's' and we overheard a Year 8 student pointing to Mauritius and saying 'this is where I was born (pointing) and this (the Seychelles) is where I want to visit next.' This is wonderful to hear as we do want to embrace the multiculturalism of our school."
"When asked a Year Seven boy said: 'It's cool, now we can see where everything is in Geography!' The scale and location of the map will make it a brilliant teaching resource for our department."
"Staff and students love the displays. They have said they are ‘awesome!’ The geography department already are planning to use their map as a corridor classroom."
