About this activity

Suitable for all schools and nurseries.

We know that your schools and nurseries are creative places and your pupils, staff and communities are bursting with ideas of how to get young London moving!

This is your chance to share your school’s innovative ideas that you’ve developed to support curriculum work, things that are different to anything else already listed on the Travel for Life website and an opportunity to be creative.

Work with your Borough Travel Planning Officer, the TFL Exporer/Pioneer/Navigator Ambassador, your school travel working group and colleagues to introduce elements of active, safer and sustainable travel into your curriculum work to influence your school community’s travel behaviours.

Include pupils in devising creative, innovative ideas, such as, tasking your history class to explore how Victorian inventions revolutionised travel in London or asking your art or graphic design class to come up with a new way to present the London underground map?
