    2. Explore the Knowledge Quarter on foot

    Now it’s time to explore an area of London called the Knowledge Quarter – by walking around! Use all your sense while you are out and about to see what the Knowledge Quarter is like – inside all the amazing buildings and outside (in between the buildings).

    Can you find any evidence of wild life – inside or outside in the Knowledge Quarter? Can you suggest how London could have even more wild life?

    We suggest starting and finishing your trail outside the British Library, next to St Pancras Station. There are seven activity locations to visit on a circular route. The walking route is about 3km (just under 2 miles) and should take around two hours to complete, but there is no time limit! We’ve pointed out a few places for picnics near to the route, and there are plenty of free public toilets around in the stations and other public buildings. There’s a map at the back to guide you.

    Good luck!

    3 – 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.
