1. Urban spaces near you: cross-curricular work

History, Literacy, Art & Design, Science: ideas and activities. Citizenship too. These materials are based on work with several schools over the years, the Leeds project, and a project for central London schools (see below).

This is creative cross-curricular work with History at its core.
