Interactive Area

4D Immersive Room

The 4D Immersive room is an amazing new addition which provides a wonderful and unique learning experience for our children here at Eldon Primary School. It has provided a real 'wow' factor which highly impacts upon and encourages our children in their learning. 

It has taken our children to new heights in their learning, providing an all-encompassing platform where the children are presented with video, audio, lighting and interactive features in one room. The children feel as though they are entering a 'new world' each time they step in the room, a magical place.

Nursery invited mystery guest reader – Mr Aspinall to the 4D Room to read their latest story all about dinosaurs. The children sat with a Tyrannosaurus Rex and were surrounded by other dinosaurs from the Jurassic period as they listened to the story.

To the treasure me hearties!

Year 1 have been using positional language and computer algorithmns to help identify hidden treasure! 

To infinity and beyond!

Year 2 have been blasting into space to explore the planets. In computing we have been using algorithms to program pupil spacebots to move from planet to planet on the interactive 4D floor. We then went onto use the 'Beebot' programmable toys.

Deep Dark Jungle

Nursey enjoyed exploring the rainforest, paying close attention to the sights and sounds.

Chinese New Year

The children took part in different activities to learn all about Chinese New Year. We even used a giant dragon and moved around the room.

Physical Education

PE Teacher Miss Perry uses the 4D Room to enhance her PE teaching. She has shown the children aspirational gymnastics and contemporary dance footage to show children what they can strive for. In the future she hopes to record clips of children during PE and analyse their performance on the big screen.

Multi-Screen Technology!

Year 2 have had the opportunity to learn how to use coding software Scratch in the 4D Room. This was achieved through projecting/mirroring a live version of the iPad screen onto one screen whilst simultaneously showing a web browser screen providing instructions onto another screen.

Early Year Learning

The Final Frontier

Year 2 combined their Space topic, maths work about angles and their computing programming all in one! They used turns to navigate computer programmed ‘Beebots’ from planet to planet.

Chinese New Year

BLAST OFF!

During Super Learning Day teachers had to imagine what they wished to become when they were older. Mr Aspinall chose to become an astronaut for the day and took children to space through the help of the 4D Room. The children used augmented reality technology to view planets, spacecraft’s and vehicles.
