What we want

We would love to buy some VR headsets for our children.

Who is this for?

This is for all children from Reception class to Year 6, to enhance their learning in lots of subjects, including Geography and History.

Why we want it

VR headsets will enable our children to visualise countries and places in a way they have never seen before. We hope that this will broaden their horizons, showing them the adventures and experiences which are possible in the world, impacting on their hopes and aspirations.
