Neighbourhood journeys: making the ordinary extraordinary

Neighbourhood journeys - making the ordinary extraordinary is a teacher's guide to using the local built environment at Key Stage 2 as a context for learning, in and around school.

The built environment is rich with opportunities to motivate, inspire and challenge children's ideas about what they know, think and aspire to. The guide contains a number of tasks and activities that are divided into four journeys.

Each journey includes curriculum links, learning objectives and resources. By embarking on these journeys, children have the opportunity to experience a range of creative processes and to discover how they can make a difference and affect change in their world.

All the activities were developed with teachers and students from two primary schools in South Bristol.

This booklet has been developed by CABE, in partnership with Creative Partnerships Bristol.
