London's Olympic Legacy

I travelled to London last week to take part in a School's programme day for the Prince's Teaching Institute at Draper's Hall in the city of London.
The other main speaker was John Widdowson...

His theme was the Olympic Legacy.
He had a large number of excellent resources based on his work in and around the Olympic Park, which I duly borrowed....

The games were now a year ago, and there has been a bit of coverage in the media about the anniversary, and the evidence of 'legacy'.
There's plenty on the Olympics at the GA website.

This Guardian article provides an interesting perspective on the latest ideas related to the legacy, and the fact that there is a mixed picture.

I will be updating the resources that were taught last year about the Olympics and doing a 'one year on' short unit to explore what has been happening since the Games.

Also check out the free OS maps of the Olympic Park as it will look in 2030 which can be downloaded from the links HERE.
