We've made planning easy with the creation of a downloadable lesson plans and worksheets with multiple links to the National Curriculum.

Tomorrow's Engineers Week 7-11 November 2016

Tomorrow’s Engineers Week shines a spotlight on engineers and engineering careers. It is an opportunity to highlight to young people the incredible things engineers work on and the range of jobs available in the industry.

To show our support we've joined The Week's 'Mission Inspiration' initiative to help show how engineering plays a big part in the London Eye's day to day operation. Download our Tomorrow's Engineers worksheet here.

 

Key Stage 1 and 2 Resources (Geography, English and Maths)

GEOGRAPHY

Bypass photography and journey 135m skywards to observe London’s physical characteristics, topographical features and land use patterns. Who will be the first to spot the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral and Buckingham Palace, maybe even Windsor Castle! Identify the location of these iconic landmarks and many others using the 8 points of a compass.

What is more observe how The River Thames, from an ariel perspective, curves and bends as it winds through London to the North Sea. With 45 locks, three areas of outstanding natural beauty and over 25 species of fish, the river boasts many human uses - how many will you count from your classroom in the sky?

ENGLISH

An innovative opportunity to encourage creative thinking, the London Eye is the ideal place to take your pupil’s on a fictional adventure. Imagine each quarter of the 30-minute journey represents an element of story construction; ask the class to come up with ideas for the problem, event, climax and resolution. Boost your pupils speaking and listening skills with a share session afterwards.

MATHS

Believe it or not, the London Eye also offers mathematical curriculum links. A real life case study, your pupils can use visitor data provided in our teacher resource pack to plot and interpret tables and graphs and solve sum and difference problems. The capsule journey can also be used to encourage counting and shape observation.

Key Stage 3 Resources (Design and Technology)

A symbol of modern London, the Coca Cola London Eye is a remarkable feat of design and engineering and a dramatic addition to London’s skyline. A source of inspiration, this is an opportunity for your pupils to analyse the work of present professionals, investigate the design technologies used, and appreciate the properties of the materials used.

In conjunction with a visit, using our teacher resource  pack, students might like to think about the early stages of the design process and develop a brief for their own capsule using design techniques such as annotated sketches, detailed plans, 3D and mathematical modelling presentation.
