Get Cycling curriculum resources

About this activity

Suitable for Key Stages 2 and 3.

NB: We’re bringing together all the TfL education programmes, including STARS, under one exciting new umbrella programme called TfL Travel for Life. They will be the same great programmes but with a new name and a new look, easier online process and dedicated support team. STARS for primary schools will be renamed TfL Explorers. STARS for secondary schools will be renamed TfL Pioneers

Use the Get Cycling curriculum resources to encourage your pupils to cycle to school and raise awareness of cycling’s benefits to health and the environment.

The resources provide lesson plans and worksheets for literacy, geography, maths, science and PE, design and technology, music, French and history.

The resources are themed around the Tour de France and Tour of Britain. They also focus on Prudential RideLondon and encourage pupils to take part in the annual Free Cycle that is part of the event.

As well as the subject area specific lesson plans and pupil worksheets, you will find additional activities designed for your TfL Explorers Ambassadors , or other groups of pupils, to deliver.

Pupils can complete the activities in class or as part of an after school club, or cycle club activity, for example.
