Summary

I'm raising £1427 to buy some VR headsets for my students which help our children to visualise a setting or place. This will have a direct impact on the quality of work over a range of subjects including literacy, history, geography and drama.

My students

We are a one form entry school in the heart of Islington. Our students come together beautifully from a variety of backgrounds and we have a strong ethos based around Christian and British Values. This term we have had a history focus throughout the school. The children have been learning about toys in the past, Romans, World War 2 and the Great Fire of London. If we had the VR resources, we would be able to take our children through a real life journey, being able to explore, observe and discuss in greater depth to aid their learning and understanding. Having extra ipod touches will allow maximum connectivity as we would have the capacity to take resources out on trips, community events and church visits. We would have the resources to record and share all the wonderful things that happen at St. Mary's in a wider context.
