Why Classroom Colour is So Important for Kids: Primary Education Development

by Ben Spray on April 19, 2021

The colours that you use in your classroom can have a powerful effect on the way students behave. Some colors encourage creativity and others are more calming, but different shades of each colour will also change its effects. In this article we'll explore some of these intriguing properties as well as how to incorporate them into any room setting so it's easy for anyone who wants to give their course an extra dose o' color!

 

-Yellow is a great colour for encouraging creativity. It's also very active, so it can be used to increase energy levels when they're low! You could use yellow in a game room or at the start of your class as an attention grabber before you introduce new material.

 

-Orange and red are perfect if you want to encourage self-confidence because they will make students feel more powerful. They might not work well with other colours but people tend to underestimate their power which makes them ideal!

 

-Blue is calming, helpful for relieving stress and reducing anxiety, making it perfect for reading corners or lessening noise levels during math time where students need plenty of concentration to solve problems correctly.

 

-Yellow and ass Green are perfect for younger students or if you want to encourage creativity. They're also very active, so they can be used to increase energy levels when they're low! You could use yellow in a game room or at the start of your class as an attention grabber before you introduce new material. Grass green is calming and great for encouraging relaxation.

 

-Purple is described by many people as 'regal' which makes it ideal for more formal classrooms with older children who have more advanced knowledge because purple will make them feel like their intelligence is being appreciated.

 

Most teachers would agree that there's no right colour for a classroom design but colour can always be added to a classroom to help children engage and learn within the environment. We hope this blog post has been helpful to parents and teachers alike.
