Our Nurture and Reflection Spaces

Are you in need of a reflection room or nurturing space?

Whatever name you call it – a nurture room can be a bridge between home and school/nursery; a place where children can feel safe and secure and therefore find the space to develop and grow as individuals.

 

We can help you create any theme, such as:

  • Beach Hut
  • Sea Theme
  • Woodland theme
  • The Four Seasons Room
  • Magical Woodland grotto hideaway
  • Cosy Cottage
  • Old fashioned Snug/drawing room…

and we’re always working on plenty more!

Using materials like bespoke adhesive wallpaper and vinyl artwork we can completely transform a room or corner of a classroom into a nurture area. You can add bean bags, furniture or your own finishing touches to complete the theme.

Nurture spaces help children develop the social and emotional skills to thrive at school. To be able to engage with peers and adults, gain resilience and a capacity to deal with the ups and downs of life, for life.

Nurture rooms can assist with:

  • Friendship difficulties – keeping/making friends
  • Quiet, shy or withdrawn
  • Find it hard to listen to others or join in
  • Disruptive towards others
  • Find it hard to accept losing a game
  • Difficulties in sharing and taking turns
  • Find it a bit difficult to settle into class
  • Bullying
  • Low self esteem
  • Poor relationships with adults in school
  • Bereavement
  • Family illness or break-up

Two Thirds Design feel passionate about helping schools transform these environments as they truly benefit pupils’ behaviour and staff morale.


Catholic Virtues

The Catholic Schools Pupil Profile greatly supports children’s spiritual, moral, vocational, social, and cultural development.

Did you know we have created a collection of child friendly displays focusing on the Values and Virtues?

These Virtue pairing plaques have been designed and developed under the guidance of the 11 UK Jesuit Schools and Fr Adrian Porter SJ, from the Jesuit Institute. A special thanks goes to Michael Burrowes at Cardinal Griffin Catholic College for facilitating this process.

They are particularly aimed at 4 – 11-year-old pupils using bright engaging colours linked to the pairings, photography and illustration, as well as selecting a simple, clear typeface with the preferred letter ‘a’ to aid early readers.

If you are interested in the displays above and would like an accurate costing, it would help if you could provide the following:

  1. Dimensions of the space so we can advise on the size.
  2. A description of the area (e.g. high footfall, near a heat source – radiator or direct sunlight) so we can advise on the right material.
  3. Photographs of the area (e.g. Reception, Hall, Corridor) so we can assess the right fixtures.

We will get back to you ASAP or alternatively contact us on 0121 233 2057 to discuss the possibilities.

Bespoke enquires welcome!

If you are a Catholic or Church of England school, your Christian ethos will be the foundation of everything you do.

Let Two Thirds Design help you to create faith based displays by producing signage and display boards that reflect your distinctive Christian character, showing the outside world as well as those inside, the school’s Christian foundation.

Take a minute to look around your school. Does your school environment reflect your faith? If you answer no, then get in touch with the Two Thirds Design team – we’ll be happy to help!
