Prime VR experience
We had the pleasure of welcoming Oliver from Prime VR (  into school to take us on several virtual field trips across the world. 
Year 5 visited the polar regions, Year 6 summited Everest, Year 7 went to the trenches of WW1 and the rainforest and Y8 were able to visit China and also see the impact of Climate Change. All of our visits linked to our current learning, previous learning or future learning and gave the children the chance to visit places we could only dream about. 
Orla Y5 said, 'This is the best thing I've ever seen.' Robbie, also in Y5 said, 'It feels like I'm really there. I can't believe it.' 
Due to the pandemic our usual trips and visits have been put on hold for over a year so this was the perfect opportunity for our children to visit somewhere different. The children gained so much knowledge from each experience, for example Y6's study on mountains took them to base camp Everest, Everest summit, K2, the Matterhorn and more. The children can't wait to hopefully do this again!
