A Virtual Reality Enrichment Day is designed for Key Stage 2 or 3 Pupils but can be adapted to suit other age groups. Pupils will take part in a Virtual Reality experience, which can be used to assist the teaching of a range of curriculum subjects such as Geography, History, Biology, Physics and Engineering.
We discuss the aims of the day, curate appropriate VR content and plan the sessions to focus on the key learning objectives.
The sessions are led by experienced Tablet Academy educators who will guide staff and students through the activity allowing pupils to learn and teachers to observe and learn as well.
Curriculum topics available: Virtual Reality.
The workshop can focus on the technology behind Virtual Reality and developing scenes using photos or creating 3D scenes.

Travelling back in time to World War I or II in VR gives students a different perspective on the horrors of war and allows them to empathise with the topic more than ever before.
Curriculum topics available: Earth and space, Rollercoasters.
Our Earth and space VR workshop is one of our most popular and a fantastic use of VR. Students will experience a rocket blasting off, then join astronauts aboard the ISS in a stunning 360 video before exploring the whole solar system, all from the comfort of the classroom.
Within the Physics category, we also support workshops focused on Forces and Rollercoasters.
Curriculum topics available: Animals including humans, Living things and habitats, Digestive System, Ecology and environment, Circulatory system , Dinosaurs, Underwater Animals and Habitats.
Exploring Biology in VR gives students a unique view of life from the inside, whether that's plants, humans, animals, fish, or dinosaurs. Simulations show how life systems work in a way that students find much easier to comprehend and will spark their curiosity.
Curriculum topics available: Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Greeks.
An inciteful look at the ancient Greeks or Egyptians (or both) with a mixture of real-life photos, computer-generated reconstructions and 360 videos to bring the topic back to life.

Flying around the world to explore Physical Geography is a natural fit for VR and allows students to see the wonders and simulate the devastating effects of nature.
Curriculum topics available: Rainforest, Global warming, Climate change.
Global Warming and Climate Change have been really popular workshops where students explore the causes, such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation, and effects of climate change, such as the Arctic ice melting, drought, forest fires and extreme weather.
Curriculum topics available: Story writing, Persuasive writing, Creative writing, Story telling.
The use of various multimedia including VR allows students a wider perspective within the specific subject areas and gives them greater opportunities for collaboration, speaking and listening. The experiences gained from our workshops can help significantly with creative writing, story telling and story writing. The imagery generates conversation between the pupils and helps them record their thoughts in more specific descriptive detail.
All of our workshops can be tailored to the specific requirements of the school. Some choose a pure VR experience, while others go for a combination of VR and written or other activities.
Up to 30 students can take part in each session. A member of staff is required to be present during the workshop plus any additional support staff as required.
