About this Skype lesson

Would you like your students to find out what it was like to carry the Olympic Torch?

Speak to Olympic Torch Bearer Jon Tait about his experience of carrying the Olympic Torch at the London 2012 Olympics. Jon will talk about what the Olympic Torch represents, a brief history of the Olympic Torch relay, what the London 2012 torch design signified and an account of his emotions during one of the proudest moments of his life.

Your students will be able to ask Jon questions about the torch and be able to see the exact torch that Jon carried last summer!

Jon is happy to connect with English speaking classes from across the world and will tailor his talk to the bespoke needs and requests of each individual class.

Hello Jon,
As the Winter Olympics approach, my class is "practicing like an olympian" on their math skills. My students are earning points for their efforts and will receive awards for their accomplishments at our closing ceremony and Breakfast for Champions on Feb. 21st.
Connecting with you and hearing about your olympic journey would help ignite my students and show the power of passion, dedication, and hard work. Hoping you are available! :)
