WOW! What a day we had last Wednesday 1st March. Who would have thought that Google would come to our school?

Well they did.. and they brought in their Google Cardboard Virtual Reality (VR) equipment to give us an experience of a lifetime.

It was amazing! We went to all four corners of the earth right from our very hall. From climbing the Great Wall of China to diving in the Ocean with sharks, from observing Gorillas in the Congo to walking on the moon.

      

Virtual reality allowed us to be a part of the topic we were learning about. It really felt as if we were really there in the photographs. We were able to look around in 360 degrees, just as we would do in real life.

                                      

Year 3 listening to Google representative        Getting into the VR experience                        ‘Aarrgh. what’s that over there?’

If you have VR at home, you can immerse yourself in the whole experience too. Download the Google Expeditions app on Apple AppStore or Google PlayStore for free and try it for yourself!

Let us know what you think of the experience.
