On Wednesday 18th April Year 1 and Year 2 at Toftwood Infant School had a virtual reality workshop. The year one children were able to zoom into space and visit lots of the planets in the solar system. The children learnt so many facts about these planets and couldn’t wait to share their new knowledge with the class.
The year 2 children travelled through space to Australia. They listened to Aboriginal stories and discussed the beliefs of the people who live there. The children watched many tribal dances that gave them clues for different animals and finished the workshop with a ‘find it’ game.
It was a brilliant experience for the children as it enabled the children to use technology to learn about their topics and has provided a wonderful learning experience for all of KS1.
