Curriculum-Linked Lessons


My Green School
is an initiative developed by Open-City to give children aged 7 to 11 across the UK the opportunity to learn about, and be inspired by sustainable architecture through first hand investigations of their own school building.

Through the My Green School Curriculum-Linked Lessons students are encouraged to explore the main themes of sustainable design through a series of subject based activities, which can be delivered in a whole class setting or as part of Learning Outside the Classroom.
The lessons support curriculum innovation in the delivery of learning about sustainable architecture and are planned to support teaching and learning at Key Stage 2 across the subject areas of English, Maths, Science, Geography and Art and Design.
