Give VR a go and see how it helps with creative writing!

Reviews from Schools..
★★★★★ "A great experience with Stuart when he visited our school this July. HIs knowledge and enthusiasm made the entire visit even more worthwhile. The children were filled with 'ooohs' and 'ahhhs' and 'wows' as they went under the sea and around the world. Thanks so much! I'm sure our school will be booking Stuart in again."
