Virtual Reality Space Exploration

Our Junior and Infant pupils recently blasted off into space for an exciting virtual reality journey exploring the universe.

After putting on their virtual reality goggles pupils waited in the docking bay in anticipation of take- off. Our Year 5 and Year 2 astronauts were quickly launched along a very realistic, fast moving, gravity defying track before floating into deepest, darkest space.

Using the virtual software our astronauts journeyed to each of the planets within our solar system and picked up many interesting facts along the way. They visited some of Jupiter’s many moons and observed the giant storm known as The Great Red Spot.

This incredible experience enhanced this term’s work in Science on the topic of Space and helped bring the universe to life. Orbiting the sun and comparing the atmosphere and composition of each planet was a wondrous experience.
