Bridgewater Primary School
Hive’s latest custom wall graphics project for Bridgewater Primary School, Salford included a stunning, photographic history timeline wall vinyl.
A history timeline is a great way to bring history to life in your school. Seeing history plotted out on a timeline can really help young children visualise the periods of history. So pupils can see how dates come together chronologically.
We maximised the space available. Utilising space around doorways and display boards to create an amazingly inspiring graphic. The timeline ran the entire length of the corridor on one side. An alcove area in one wall was also cleverly incorporated into the timeline to create an Egyptian tomb. The end result, transformed what was once a bland school corridor.
The timeline was entirely bespoke and customised to include key topics of focus in the school’s history curriculum. The graphics incorporated key facts, events and people from history along the way. This made the wall display as educational and informative as possible.
We presented a number of different styles for the graphics to the school. From these designs Bridgewater selected a photographic route to really bring history to life. All our wall art is bespoke, so we can incorporate any events you wish. In this timeline we added local history events and when Bridgewater School was built. Each wall graphic we create is bespoke so you can ensure it is unique to your school.
Hive designed, printed and installed the history timeline wall vinyl over the summer holidays. The graphics were printed on high tac vinyl and laminated. This protects the vinyl and helps extend its lifespan. This also means it can be wiped clean.
The end result had huge impact and looked amazing.
So what did the school think?
“I think I can confidently say that we are all very impressed with the Wall Art that we have had installed. The children can’t stop pointing out new things that they have already spotted. I know just from my class that they ‘love it’ and keep showing me information that they have discovered about the Ancient Greeks – our current topic. It has definitely added the wow factor to our corridors!”
We also created a world map wall graphic for one of the school’s cloakrooms. The world map included names of each country and their capital cities. Decorated with captivating animal illustrations and landmarks. To take a look at other examples of world map wall graphics click here.
