    1. The Art of Walking

    From London’s iconic landmarks students will learn about architecture and public art, they will plan and conduct their own walking tour and gain inspiration for their own architecture-inspired creative project. Classroom-based learning and the walking tour will focus on one of five architecturally rich areas of London (detailed in the accompanying publication London architecture and public art: a London Curriculum primer) as selected by the teacher.

    With special mention to the Museum of London, Open City and A.N.D.

     Is London sustainable?

    • Watch the animated video about Sustainable Development
    • Think about the recent walking trip you took around London
    • What examples of sustainability did you see/ experience (you can include walking here too!)
    • How do you think London could be more sustainable? Can you use these insights in your project from Section 1.



    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.
