Our 4D Immersive Room
There’s magic at New Islington! As is fitting in such a modern building, we have a state-of-the-art 4D Immersive Room. Specifically design to encourage, enthuse and engage our learners, this room uses projected video footage on floor-to-ceiling screens, with surround sound and focussed lighting. Combined with an interactive floor space we can create a truly "immersive" experience.
It's easy to see why the children love it – this room provides a real ‘wow’ factor.
In this room, New Islington pupils have been transported back in time to Queen Victoria’s coronation, been on magic carpet rides, taken a voyage to Australia, sheltered away from Polar Bears in the Arctic, hidden away in a haunted houses and explored countless other worlds, all within the same four walls.
The interactive floor means that the water ripples – and fish scatter – when the children "dip their toes in" and artefacts can be "uncovered" from underneath the sand in the desert. This room really does bring learning to life - because the children can see it and hear it, it becomes so real to them.
This room is very much about opening eyes and being inspirational. Teachers use this room as a ‘hook’ into learning. It encourages children’s imaginations which in turn stimulates discussion, vocabulary development as well as knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
Come and see it to believe it!
