Afterwards I hope you’re inspired by Jona’s book to plan your adventure into London’s Creative Quarter. Enjoy!!

    South Kensington is London’s ‘Creative Quarter’. Join Hyde the Owl to find out about the inventions, discoveries and creations of talented Londoners, from scientists and explorers to artists, architects and musicians. It’s going to be a lot of fun, are you ready?

    After you’ve explored London’s Creative Quarter think about which things that you saw would please the ‘Mad Genius Inventor Boy’ from the story.

    With special thanks to the Mayor of London and his Education and Youth team.

    Background to this resource

    This project aims to:

    1. Connect London’s schools to great resources based on their city and
    2. To suggest ways to introduce a global perspective to their work.

    Each blog will be based on two major curriculum resources available freely to teachers:

    1. The London Curriculum– developed by experts in their field working in partnership with the Mayor of London and his Education and Youth team.
    2. The World’s Largest Lesson– produced by Project Everyone in partnership with Unicef to help schools address three major challenges:
    • End extreme poverty
    • Fight inequality and injustice
    • Tackle climate change

    Each blog will aim to provide ways for teachers to reflect on these big issues through their own contexts, subject areas and from a London perspective.

    Thanks to the teams at City Hall and Project Everyone for providing these great resources. Some of my blog has been adapted from their websites.
