covering windows

Discussion in 'Primary' started by kayleedestiny1, Nov 19, 2011.

  1. I'm a bit fed up with the fact that what is happening OUTSIDE my classroom is always more interesting that what's happening inside, and I want an attractive way to cover the lower half of the classroom windows, that will still let the light in, AND will hold fairly firm so that I can still use my sliding windows without wrecking what ever I have attached to them. Does anyone have any suggestions for a translucent attractive cover, AND a way to secure it firmly and flat? (This term they were covered with butcher's paper icicles, but they weren't very enduring)

  2. Get water based paint and paint on a display that ties in with your topic. Ive seen it done loads of times, can look fab and washes off easily

    I blu-tac up work, using the windows in the same way as I use the display boards. Mainly because I never have enough display space.

    What goes on outside your room that makes it so exciting? Mine is just an empty playground most of the time.

    I once had a building site outside my Nursery class window. One day there was a huge crane putting roof beams on and I said "Look at that crane out of the window!". A little girl immediately shouted "I didn't do it!", "Do what?", "I didn't crayon on the window."

    Maybe there is something interesting going on out there - can you use it?
  5. The windows on one side look into the pre-school playground - they all want watch them play! The other side is the hard court - often used for fitness, and even push carts oncre a week! Thanks for the idea.
