As working with modular buildings offers the opportunity to incorporate plenty of natural light, TG Escapes, the team behind Modular Classrooms have looked into how it can have a positive impact in the learning environment now that children have returned to school.
Consulting with an expert optometrist to gather further insight into the topic, Modular Classrooms discovered that natural light regulates our sleep-wake cycle, puts different hormonal functions in place, and increases serotonin levels, which are responsible for our sense of appetite, memory, energy and sleepiness, which shows how natural light itself can have an important impact on learning.
A spokesperson for Modular Classrooms also commented:
“Over recent years, we have seen an increase in the amount of schools looking to improve the educational environment, including incorporating natural light into the spaces.
In particular, parents and teachers are witnessing first-hand how natural light can benefit and improve learning, which can lead to students having better focus, attention and memory, which ultimately can help to better exam results.
For a previous build for Kymbrook Primary, based in Bedfordshire, Modular Classrooms specifically had natural light in mind throughout the design process. The project, which was priced at £146k, was based on a brief that the children required a new space to learn and play, with plenty of light to stimulate their learning.
The design of the new building enabled the children to feel more excited, as the natural lighting provides that outdoor feeling which can boost morale. During the project, the school’s previous hall was replaced with a structure consisting of a raised roof, which now allows room for multi-sports activities, such as racquet sports."
A spokesperson for Kymbrook Primary commented:
“The big windows let so much sunshine into the building and the natural light gives them an extra energy boost”.
children now back to school, the government is currently
looking into viable options for creating additional space for the future
of schooling. Whilst Kymbrook Primary is just one of ten schools built
across Bedfordshire, modular
creates the extra space for school children, important for social
distancing measures. Schools can also take up the option to keep classes
inside the 'out of school' buildings whilst other classes stay in
traditional classroom environments. Modular
