Jumping Buses - KS1

Discover the true story of the bus that jumped Tower Bridge!

Pupils will travel back in time to 30 December 1952 - the day the Number 78 bus jumped Tower Bridge - and take part in a costumed storytelling session to discover the story.

They will then practise comprehension skills (retelling stories) by working in pairs to create a stop motion animation of the bus jump. These films can be shared with the school for post-visit work or publishing on school websites or social media.
