Now>Press>Play

Pupils have been enjoying a new resource at St Philip’s  called Now>Press>Play.  Using wireless headphones pupils become immersed in an audio story where they become the main character and act out stories and adventures.  With a variety of experiences available, pupils have travelled to the Victorian era as Mary Seacole for a Black British History topic and became Charles Darwin on HMS Beagle whilst learning about Evolution in Science.

Acorn class wrote and acted out their own Now>Press>Play as part of the Drama curriculum.
