Virtual Reality

Today saw an exciting start to our next topic - Ancient Egypt.

The company 'PrimeVR' brought a set of virtual reality headsets into school and we had opportunity to see inside an Egyptian pyramid. We saw a burial chamber, complete with mummy and we were able to visit the tomb of pharaoh Nefertari.


"It was really happy to see so many cool things."

"The workshop made me really interested in learning about Egyptians."

"I really liked the room with all of the coffins in."

"I liked it when we went into Nefertari's tomb."


At the end of the session, we were able to choose another setting to explore.
