The Transformational Learning Hub at the new River View Primary School in Salford, Manchester, features our colourful A-Z map Floorink. Covering all 220sqm of floor space, the A-Z map creates a fun yet practical flooring solution - not only does it provide a dramatic feature to the space, it is also an effective learning tool for the children.
River View was designed by Urban Vision and constructed by Laing O'Rourke as part of the New Broughton regeneration scheme. The school has been designed to promote a positive learning environment for all, and the A-Z street map printed for the large Learning Hub on the first floor certainly inspires the children when learning about their local area.
We visited the school shortly after it opened for the new Autumn Term, and the children enthusiastically showed us how they use the floor space during their lessons. They have had so much fun finding their street on the map and working out where friends and family live. The teachers were also very impressed with the impact the floor creates. The roads and streets are large scale so the children can actually walk local routes on the map.
