Amazing Maths corridor displays

Here are 8 great displays that we produced with my colleagues from The Compton last year :)
We spend a lot of time and put a lot of effort researching how to best put maths in context, keeping our displays inspiring, nice and visual. For KS3, KS4 and even A level. Hope you can use them in your school too!

British Values Display Posters

Create a powerful display to promote British Values in your school / classroom / nursery with these child friendly posters. Over 10 posters included (some with variations). The posters depict and explain democracy, the rule of law, mutual respect, individual liberty and tolerance to those of different faiths and beliefs.

Every school in England must promote British values in their SMSC development, which is particularly important to Ofsted. This set is perfect for that!

The document is in .pdf format (not editable) however if you have any suggestions, my email address can be found on the last page of the resource.

Growth Mindset Poster Train the Brain Wall Display

This colorful Growth Vs Fixed Mindset Wall Display will encourage a growth mindset in your classroom. They make a perfect reference tool all year round and great when setting up your classroom.

The wall display comes in two sizes. A4 and A3. That is the brain is either A4 or A3 size depending on how much wall space you have. Personally I use the A3 brain with the speech bubbles from the A4 set.

I have also included a black and white brain for the students to color in themselves.

Anatomy of a computer wall display

A complete set of labels, display title and explanations that can be used to make an interactive wall display to show the internal components of a desktop computer. Apart from the labels you will need an old computer that can be taken to pieces and mounted on a classroom wall which makes an interesting activity for a group of techie students. The display explanations that are light green in the image have had self adhesive velcro tape stuck to the reverse. These are then stuck onto the display in the appropriate locations. Why on velcro? I give the labels out to students on the way into the classroom and they have to work out where their label has to be stuck. This is a simple way of getting students to associate the explanations and components.
