Winners of the classroom displays competition announced

In September 2016, the National STEM Learning Network launched a competition asking teachers to share photos of the classroom displays they’re particularly proud of.

Teachers were tasked with sharing a photo of their display and the resources they used to create it, enabling other teachers to be inspired and replicate these ideas in their own classrooms. 

The submission deadline was last week, and since then the six winners have been chosen from a number of fantastic entries. 

The winners

Wiggling and crawling their way to the top

This fantastic classroom display was created by children with autism at Beverley School, who have just completed a cross curricular creative project with the theme of minibeasts. The children took part in a minibeast hunt, experiments and a number of creative projects!

 Digestion as you’ve never seen it before

Using everyday objects to represent areas of the human digestive, this display was built up and added to as the students learnt more. The display was passed on to the school science club, so that it can be used by younger pupils.

An out of this world space display 

Children of all ages got involved in creating a range of wonderful space displays at Sanfield School. Not only did this school pack their displays full of books and activities, they even borrowed a sample of the moon and meteorites!

When curiosity gets the better of you

Year 7 students made this display to show their work on cells and how it links to studies across the curriculum. It features work from students in Years 7, 8 and 9 and includes photographs, model cells and inflatable cells.

A room packed full of design inspiration

From comic strips to Google Doodles, this classroom is full to the brim of inspiring visual displays showing a range of engaging projects students have completed in their lessons.

Superheroes assemble to teach science

Featuring Superman, Wolverine, the Human Torch and many others, this display uses the topic of superheroes to teach biology, chemistry and physics. Looking into topics about Human Torch’s state of matter and Wolverine’s healing power, the superhero display is a great way to get students talking about science.

These were just six of the many amazing entries we received in this competition, to see all of the entries visit the following community groups:
