WHAT IS TRAVEL TO TOKYO?
Travel to Tokyo is a programme for schools and local communities designed to help children and their families to get active together, try new things and most importantly: have fun. It’s all about team spirit and building a habit of physical activity, rather than focusing on competition. The challenge uses the inspiration of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, encouraging children to explore different cultures around the world and the preparations athletes make as they begin their journey towards Tokyo.
Travelling in school teams, children will gain kilometres by logging their physical activity on the Travel to Tokyo website. Travel to Tokyo is all about getting active at home as well as in school, so teams will travel quicker by logging activity with their family. By taking part, pupils will grow in confidence and learn vital skills, such as teamwork and resilience, as well as having the chance to win exciting prizes along the way.
Teams will take the tourist route, travelling 47,349 kilometres and stopping off en route at cities which have hosted, or will soon host, an Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Well done to all pupils and families who have logged physical activity on the Travel to Tokyo page:
