We had an amazing morning with Google Expeditions! We used Google Cardboard glasses that have a device inserted inside. When you wear the glasses you are able to experience virtual reality and go to places you may never be able to in real life. First we took a tour of Greece, which we will be learning about this term. Next we dove underwater and swam with sharks. Finally we explored an active volcano! The children had an incredible time and were truly amazed at what they saw.
Here’s a great animation. Are you dizzy yet?
Year 4 got up close and personal with volcanoes today! We used Google Cardboard to explore different volcanoes and their surroundings. We identified physical features, volcanic activity and the after effects. It was amazing.
“Awesome! I’m falling” Year 4 boy.
“Agghhh! Look at that” Year 4 girl.
“It feels like I’m there!” Year 4 pupil.
This inspired us to create our own volcanic art work.
We also heard all about a real volcano from a primary source in school, who witnessed an active volcano in Greece.
What a fantastic day!
This term year two have been learning all about Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate!
We have been to Cadbury’s factory and got to taste all the delicious bars of chocolate they make.
Now we are becoming chocolatiers, yes you heard it right. We are making our own chocolate bars. Coming to a playground near you. However, these are special bars, because they are healthy and of course tasty.
Next Friday we will be creating some of our inventions. It is going to be incredible.
Billesley’s Marvellous Creations! Friday 21st of October!
This week the nursery have been becoming master chefs of the garden variety.
We are so excited because Google Expeditions came to visit! It was epic putting on the goggles, exploring the Colosseum, going inside the Pantheon and touring round the ancient market.
Oooo’s and Aaaaah’s rippled across the school as the children gasped with amusement.
Year One went on an exciting adventure around Billesley to learn about the local area and the different types of buildings. We spotted lots of different types of accommodation such as semi-detached, detached, terraced houses, flats, bungalows and EVEN caravans!
It was a fun filled afternoon and we all went home to find out what type of house we lived in! Yay! 🙂
