Google Expeditions

Today our Key Stage 2 classes have visited Mayan ruins in Mexico, The Great Barrier Reef, the Moon, the plains of Africa, and hidden worlds.

It was all thanks to the new Google Expeditions app which we have had demonstrated in school today.  Using the special cardboard headset and a smart phone, children have been immersed in virtual reality worlds, discovering and learning exciting new things.

It was a pleasure to hear the excited “wows and whoas” as the children were transported to the various different places.  They all really enjoyed the experience as the photos show.

Year 5 and 6 at the Peace Service

On Wednesday 19th October, children from Year 5 and Year 6 took part in the Peace Service at St Augustine’s Church, alongside children from several other local school.  The service was built around the theme of refugees.  The children put on a performance called Children of Two Worlds, which compared the lives of western children and children who are refugees.  Father David made references to their words when he spoke to the congregation.  As always, the children were a credit to the school.p1070533 p1070529
