Last week we were invited to run a Creative Workshop in the 4D Immersive Space at St Christopher’s Primary School.
The pupils at St Christopher’s had spent the last few weeks on a journey to learn all about the Titanic. This included building a model of the ship in the school hall and some pupils were also lucky enough to have a day out to see the incredible Giants walk the streets of Liverpool. (An event we at Team 4D also enjoyed!)
We sent our INSET practitioner extraordinaire Gav to run a story telling session in the 4D Immersive Space. We developed a series of incredible new images, sounds and lighting states to help transport the pupils to the deck of the ship in1912. The soundscapes were particularly impressive and were designed by our most recent intern Lauren.
Gav told the story of the Titanic from the perspective of Lawrence Beesley, a survivor of the disaster . By changing the atmosphere in the 4D Immersive Space with light sound and projection, he was able to get the pupils into the mindset of the passengers and encouraged them to think about the feelings and emotions of those on board. Something that had previously felt like a historical project, now felt very real to the young people learning.
As a new member of our team, Gav has joined us to improve our training and INSET options. A former drama teacher and creative practitioner, Gav is able to show how you can really use our immersive spaces to inspire pupils. He can also explain how to use our 4D create software to create incredible immersive learning environments in non techie language!

Today we are inundated with such an immense flood of printed matter that the value of the individual work has depreciated, for our harassed contemporaries simply cannot take everything that is printed today. It is the typographer’s task to divide up and organize and interpret this mass of printed matter in such a way that the reader will have a good chance of finding what is of interest to him.
Here’s a letter we received this week from a pupil at St Christopher’s.
