sen ourboards school wood frame design 9 square blank grid mat

Table top OurBoards are light and easy to handle are a brilliant addition to any classroom. They work alongside the OurBoard working wall, allowing the children to contribute to the lesson they are in. Due to the flexibility of the OurBoards, and their innovative design, they can be effortlessly incorporated into any Early Years, Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 setting. Using a standard dry wipe pen the children can work with learning partners or in small groups to record their ideas either on the OurBoards themselves or on one of the many different magnetic mats that can be purchased for specific subjects.

Children will find the OurBoards exciting and motivating when working together within their groups. The OurBoards are large enough for a group of children to work on together, developing and sharing ideas for a project. At the same time, the OurBoards are easy to handle so magnetic mats can be removed and placed on the Working Wall at any time during a lesson without requiring support from an adult.

A table top OurBoard is an extremely helpful teaching resource when working with SEN groups. Not only is the OurBoard a traditional dry wipe surface but also is magnetic and comes in a range of different coloured backgrounds to support children who find reading from a white background more difficult. The interactive mats are clear and simple to use, providing the teacher with a great starting point in any subject.

In trials the tactile nature of the product has proved incredibly popular with autistic children who take to the board with enthusiasm. The simple design of the lesson mats, and the “write, wipe, repeat” process encourages children to develop and improve their skills, even when self-confidence is low.


There are four designs to choose from.
