I was looking at advice regarding Autism friendly classrooms and came across several articles which suggested research showing overly decorated classrooms with many different displays actually detract from children's learning. The Articles suggest that only materials related to the current lesson be displayed. Has anyone any further information regarding this? I totally understand the idea of only showing current learning and keeping displays upto date but how does one manage to achieve this in a Primary classroom where we are asked to have Literacy and Numeracy working walls, Science and Topic work? Not to mention targets, group lists, phonic posters, keywords and of course children's work on display to give them 'ownership, of the space? How can displays of current Science work be prevented from distracting children from current Maths learning and so on? Would really appreciate any advice from those working in mainstream Primary classrooms who have explored this issue or put the latest research into practice.
