Our workshops are a great way of bringing the curriculum to life without the hassle of organising a school trip!
During our Stone Age workshop, your children will learn all about:
- A typical Stone Age settlement
- Theories behind how Stonehenge was built
- Theories behind why it was built
Whilst exploring a typical Stone Age settlement and Stonehenge, our passionate educators will talk your class through all of the theories and ideas surrounding them.
Following on from this workshop, your pupils can write an information text about everything they have learnt and experienced. Our literacy bundles include lesson plans, example texts and LKS2 and UKS2 writing checklists.
We cover the following topics using VR:
Rainforests, Space, Egyptians, Mayans, Volcanoes, Wonders of the World, Under the Sea, WW1, Polar Regions, Digestive System, Romans, Stone Age, Mountains, Americas, The Tudors, Vikings, Circulatory System, Africa, Animals, India & Beyond, Journey Across China, The Respiratory System and Around the World.
Curriculum topics available: Creative writing.
At PrimeVR, we understand how difficult it can be to inspire children with their writing. We aim to create excitement by virtually transporting your class to the Stone Age! Not only will we provide your class with exciting facts about life during the Stone Age but we'll also provide them with an experience to ignite their imagination. Give VR a go and see how it helps with creative writing!
Following on from our workshop, you can download our literacy lesson pack, which encourages children to write about how Stonehenge was built and what it might have been used for. Each lesson pack includes an instruction sheet, model text and writing checklist (relevant to LKS2 or UKS2).
Curriculum topics available: Stone Age.
PrimeVR can bring your history topic to life by transporting your pupils back in time to the Stone Age! Using virtual reality headsets, we'll take your class to see some typical Stone Age houses and we'll show them how Stonehenge might have been built and what it might have been used for.
introduce your class to the different planets in our Solar System, their respective sizes, the Milky Way Galaxy and we'll even step onboard the International Space Station!

"A fantastic immersive day for the Y3 children to explore the Stone Age. Thoroughly enjoyable and full of excellent factual information for the
children to take away"
"It is always a special moment when the children in your class are so incredibly excited about something that they talk about it for hours and then days afterwards.
Having Chris from the PrimeVR team really enhanced our Stone Age topic and hooked the children into their learning about volcanoes. I was so lovely seeing the surprise on their faces and hearing the numerous "Ooo's and wow's."
I would thoroughly recommend them and I will certainly look at booking them again for next year."
