Real Life Educational Activities

KidZania London, based in Westfield London Shepherds Bush, is a 75,000-sq. ft indoor city built just for kids, where 60 real life activities are available for children to engage with. Whether these activities take place in the bank, on stage or in the fire station, each real-life experience is crafted to teach essential life skills including financial literacy, teamwork and independence.

National curriculum links

School visits are suitable for KS1, KS2 and KS3 pupils from ages four to fourteen, blending learning and reality with entertainment. Each activity has been developed and supported by qualified teachers with multiple KS1, KS2 and KS3 curriculum links in English, STEM and PSHE. For example your students can learn how to become a skilled reporter at Metro’s Kidzania headquarters. Curriculum points include learning to “distinguish between statements of fact and opinion” and “writing narratives about personal experiences”.

Activities

Integrity, responsibility, respect and solidarity are just some of the values teachers can expect their students to learn via roles in KidZania’s fire and rescue, veterinary service and police. The KidZania paramedics will learn collaboration by discovering that they need to rely on each other to assist in emergencies. They will also develop communication skills by informing patients of the treatment they will receive. Firefighters, meanwhile, will learn basic safety and prevention procedures. Like paramedics, the firefighters must work together collaboratively to complete their training, know how to respond in an emergency and respond successfully to a call out. There’s also the chance for pupils to take on the role of a police officer and go out on patrol to maintain safety and order for all KidZanians. In these positions of authority children will protect residents, respond to anonymous tips, follow mysterious clues, interview witnesses and crack a case.

Educational events

Visit between 28th February 2nd March to experience our World Book Day event. KidZania will be hosting a celebration of literature, reading and writing to encourage children to develop their love of reading.
