What is the purpose of a Studio inside a classroom?

I have looked at the Teachers FAQ section https://scratch.mit.edu/educators/faq  and cannot find an answer and I have used the search feature in Discussions and still cannot find what I am looking for so I would love the communities support please.

As you can probably tell I am setting up my classrooms for the first time using my new teacher account.  I understand putting an activity in the classroom so I can work through Lesson 1 etc.  But I don't understand when, how and in what circumstances do you use a Studio - is this like a gallery the children save their finised project in to?

Can I share a scratch projects in to a studio e.g. Penguin Joke https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/10014986/  so that the children open this to remix?

I am following the CreativeComputing20140806 .pdf as my introduction to teaching Scratch for across three year groups, aged 6 to 9 years of age.  Because they are so young the Teacher Classroom system is going to be invaluable for me and I really want to get to grips managing my space before I introduce it to the kids.

Thank you for any support offered, Donna x
