Today we received a visit from Google Expeditions! Each class had the chance to go on a virtual trip that linked to the learning in their classroom! We even had some time for some extra exotic trips too! The children travelled to the far flung shores of Brazil and Mexico, scaled dangerous volcanic peaks, explored lunar landscapes and dived to the depths of the oceans.
