Year 6 Virtual Reality Experience on Monday 29 November - The Americas

As part of our geography learning about South America, Year 6 will be visited in school by a company called PrimeVR who will take them to The Americas through a virtual reality experience.


VR gives pupils a different perspective. Not only does it help to inspire creativity but it also gives pupils the chance to develop their knowledge. Each session will be led by a PrimeVR team member who will be sharing facts and asking questions. This is an interactive session and pupils will be encouraged to discuss what they’ve seen, ask questions and be curious!


Our aim with this workshop is to bring your South America topic to life with this road trip across North and South America. During this workshop, children will be introduced to famous landmarks across both continents. Starting in North America and the United States, pupils will be given a bird's eye view of New York. Following this, they will leave the USA for Mexico, where they will be taken to visit one of the 7 New Wonders of the World: Chichén Itzá. Continuing our road trip into South America, children will visit Christ the Redeemer in Rio De Janeiro, Angel Falls in Venezuela and Machu Picchu in Peru. At each destination, children will have the opportunity to ask questions and find out more information about these famous landmarks. Within the workshop, children will visit five different countries and all in the space of 30 minutes!
