Mind Mapping at Middlewood Locks…

As part of the Middlewood Locks public consultation programme Studio Egret West held a series of workshops with year 3 & 4 pupils at St Philips C of E Primary School in Salford.

With two underlying objectives of understanding the present situation and discovering a vision for the future, the three part pupil workshop explored themes of “mind-mapping”, where pupils investigated their journey, experiences and encounters from home to school using the five senses; “home-sweet-home”, collecting visual information on the positives and areas to improve in the area the children live in; and “the bigger picture”, which encouraged the children to become designers and create their own narrative for the site. All this led to some fantastic ideas, great feedback and fun!
