About Travel to Tokyo Home Learning Pack

This home learning pack includes lots of free, downloadable ideas to get active at home as a family. It can be used as part of the Travel to Tokyo challenge!

What is Travel to Tokyo?

The Travel to Tokyo challenge is all about getting young people active together with their families. The challenge from Team GB, ParalympicsGB and Sport England uses the inspiration of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games to get 5–11s and their families moving, aiming to build lasting active habits.

Children get active and log their activity against their school teams to help their team gain kilometres on a virtual journey to Tokyo. Children are encouraged to do activity with family to gain more distance and get to Tokyo faster. Teams will be taking the tourist route and visiting different cities which have previously hosted the Olympic and Paralympic Games (or will soon!). Children can follow the progress to Tokyo using the Team and School Dashboards. Families who log activity are in with the chance of winning prizes, including fitness trackers, skipping ropes and speakers. Local leisure facilities are also supporting the challenge – look out for free sessions and places to log your activity coming soon!
