Sometimes it is easier to see something than have it explained to you, and occasionally pupils just need to be taken out of a classroom environment and dropped into an immersive world; where they can explore ancient Egyptian life, fly amongst the planets of our solar system or enter and explore a cell's molecules. At St Neot's we are fortunate enough to give pupils these experiences using a newly acquired VR class kit and Google Expeditions. We are moving away from simply ‘learning’ a subject or topic to ‘feeling’ the content. This is not simply an engagement tool or a gimmick, it allows the children to explore, to experience or to be involved in something, as if they are actually present in that environment or place. Children across Main School have been marching with Roman soldiers, landing on the moon and flying around the our solar system as their lessons truly come to life.
