Top 10 now>press>play immersive school trip destinations

What would you give for your pupils to have the opportunity to experience the world… Fortunately, with our immersive lessons, you can increase your children’s cultural capital without breaking the bank.

The use of auditory, digital reality is highly effective in engaging pupils. They listened carefully through their headphones […] to engage in role play as if they were embarking on a journey into a pyramid. Pupils developed a raft of rich language, which they used to discuss how they felt during the different aspects of their journey. This inspired them to discuss their ideas before putting pen to paper.

In a now>press>play Experience, teachers make pupils’ world bigger by taking them on a vivid adventure through their topic. Afterward, you can capitalise on their experience by using ready-made, editable literacy resources to stretch their imaginations and skills even further.

With a library of over 90+ Experiences from EYFS to Year 6, that only cost £2 per pupil on average, will you take them to the Amazon, back in time or into space first?
