We went over to Orford Park in Warrington last week for an afternoon of den making and storytelling. The pupils from Bewsey Lodge School made the short trip to the fantastic new community centre to learn about Greek myths in a 4D Immersive Space.
Our teaching associate Gav took a room of pupils and teachers on an adventure that included den making, Theseus, a minotaur and being lost in a labyrinth. Afterwards pupils had to feedback on what they had seen, heard and imagined and then took this back to school to start a writing assignment on their experiences.
Before leaving we had a quick chat with a couple of the young people to see what they thought of the immersive space.
Leah, a year 5 pupil, told us that “Usually I can’t picture things when I’m writing stores but now I can really imagine it as I have the sights and sounds around me. It was really inspiring”
We made a stop motion video of the day which you can view here:
