Our street

The built environment is all around us, made up of the cities, towns and villages in which we live and work. These buildings, and the spaces between them, form a rich learning resource, full of clues about our past and challenges for the future. Taking as its subject a single street this book is intended to promote visual awareness and understanding of the built environment at key stage 2. Using the activities described, pupils will learn to identify and interpret the built environment that they see every day, by looking closely and analysing their experiences.
