Open Futures website

Primary school resources from the Open Futures project including growing and cooking activities. The resources were developed by the Open Futures programme, an education initiative created by the Helen Hamlyn Trust, which ran from 2005-2017 working with over 80,000 pupils at 164 schools throughout England.
The website makes available all the teaching resources developed during the programme, based around philosophy (P4C) and practical skills including growing fruit and vegetables, cooking food, and film production. The collection includes information ranging from organisation and management through to individual lesson plans.
