Well-designed classrooms use colour. Colour creates interest, provides contrast and stimulates a child’s senses. It also highlights key teaching points, classifies information, and provides an engaging environment for children to learn in.
However, using colour in the classroom isn’t a simple case of putting some paint on the walls. And nor is it just about making eye-catching displays! Instead, the colours we use and the way we use them have a huge impact on children with special education needs.
