Down to London yesterday on another spring day for the final presentations of Save the Children Fund's EYE TO EYE project.
I caught a slightly earlier train than I needed to, to give me the chance to walk around the St. Paul's area: a part of London I hadn't been to before (or at least not for a long time). St. Paul's itself was very impressive of course (good to see a nice whisky shop just outside the precinct as well)
Across the Millennium Bridge, with a view of the crowds outside the Globe Theatre, to Tate Modern, which had loads of school groups wandering around.
Tate Modern for the first time. The turbine hall was filled (ish) with an exhibit called 'London 2058'.


Walked back over the bridge as the City of London school 'kicked out', and to the Save the Children HQ just round the corner from Smithfield market.

The occasion was the final showcase of the EYE TO EYE PROJECT, the funding for which ends at the end of the month, but which has seen the publication of a book and resource pack to allow teachers to take the project further within their own classrooms.
A presentation showing the background to the scheme was shown, and a chance to meet some of the teachers involved in the development of the project, and the resources which grew out of it, such as this game of MIGRATION DOMINOES. (PDF DOWNLOAD)
Good to meet some familiar faces, and some new ones, and particularly to meet some very enthusiastic geographers who were loving the new 'Living Geography' approaches to teaching the new KS3 curriculum, and also some GeographyJazz followers. Nice work !
