Fall in Love with London Lesson Pack

What Makes Each Borough In London So Special? We want to celebrate everything that is incredible about London and share what it truly means to be inspired by your everyday surroundings. To do this we need your students help and you'll need this free lesson pack!

The overall aim of this project is for students to fall in love with London over a series of thought provoking lessons. We not only want students to learn more about their capital city, but also to celebrate London’s different boroughs and their unique personalities.

Share your students’ typography design on Twitter to be in with the chance of being one of ten lucky schools to win a school trip for their class to the London Eye. T&Cs Apply.

The London Skyline (Ages 7-13)

We are all about opportunities which bring a touch of magic to learning, so we’ve created a new, completely free, resource to support you in the classroom. With three hours’ worth of content pre- and -post an educational visit to the London Eye, these activities enable students to locate and categorise London's main Physical and Human features into North, South, East and West compass positions, describe the Physical and Human features of London in relation to the capital's history, and analyse the impact of London's architecture on its environment, culture and tourism industry.

Our students really enjoyed their trip on the London Eye as well as the 4D film experience. The online materials about the skyline were really useful in preparing them for the experience, and also made walking around London fun because they recognised the buildings they studied and were able to see many of them close up.
