Olympic Village Development

Stratford in East London is not the only place which is attracting Olympic attention. The Big Room has experienced  it’s own development site as Scott’s Hut has been dismantled to be replaced by an Olympic Village and Keep Fit Centre. The Village is somewhere where the children can meet fellow athletes; find out about Olympic athletes from around  the world, (developing a deeper understanding of the world and Scotland’s place in it); work out in the keep fit centre, (timing each other with alarm clocks and timers); learn about food health by preparing healthy snacks in the Olympic cafe; practise number and money skills by selling and buying those snacks and explore the food journeys that snack ingredients have taken to reach Keills. And these are just SOME of the learning opportunities which children can experience. The children have planned their Olympic Village and keep coming up with new ideas. Just like all big construction developments I have a feeling that the Big Room Olympic Village and Keep Fit Centre is going to keep evolving right up to the last minute!
