Why are PrimeVR a great choice for bringing fun workshops into your school?

Our workshops are a great way of bringing the curriculum to life without the hassle of organising a school trip!

During the Mayan Archaeologist workshop, your children will learn all about:

- How the Mayan city of Chichen-Itza flourished around 600 AD
- The savage and barbaric sport of Pok-A-Tok (and where it was played)
- How people were sacrificed at the top of El Castillo (Temple of Kukulkan)
- How the Mayan civilisation were keen and advanced astronomers
- The Temples of the Warriors, El Caracol and Las Monjas

Following on from this workshop, your pupils can write an instruction text about the savage sport of Pok-A-Tok. Our literacy bundles include lesson plans, example texts and LKS2 and UKS2 writing checklists.

Using virtual reality, we can teach your pupils all about the ancient civilisation of the Mayans. We take your class on a trip to the famous archaeological site of Chichen-Itza in Mexico.

We bring in 16 VR headsets and we usually run our workshops with children sharing one headset between two. However, if you would prefer, we can split classes into two groups to allow children to have one headset each.

We deliver our workshops on the school-site. We require one classroom or hall for the day.

Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?

Yes. We've worked with a number of SEN schools and the response/feedback to VR has been fantastic.
