The chronicles of a therapeutic classroom: What a year it's been

This year, Shahana Knight has transformed a real-life year 3 classroom into a fully therapeutic environment. As the end of term approaches, she reflects on the project and the lessons learned

I can’t quite believe that this is our last diary entry. It has been a privilege to write for Headteacher Update about our project with Shevington Vale Primary School in Wigan and take you on this journey with us.

As I have mentioned in previous entries, this really is a significant moment in my career and the feedback and responses we have had have blown me away.

I now have a further 10 schools and counting signed up to reinvent their classrooms next year and I will be sharing their stories in future articles.

In the meantime, I want to share some final thoughts and lessons from our first ever reinventing classrooms project.
