Riding a virtual Rollercoaster

Today, Mrs McNulty’s class worked with Mr Parkinson. He brought in a virtual reality headset! This allowed us to ride a virtual rollercoaster!

We discussed why people ride them and why they are popular. We listed words to describe how we may feel before riding:

  • Scared
  • Terrified
  • Nervous
  • Anxious
  • Petrified

We then pushed this further and looked at how we would show we felt this way. How would you show you were nervous? We thought of ideas such as –

  • Red face
  • Trembling lips
  • Biting their lips
  • Butterflies in their stomachs
  • Sweaty, clammy hands
  • Dry mouth
  • Lump in their throat.

We then had time to ride the rollercoaster –

We then wrote a paragraph of how we felt as the rollercoaster started. Mr Parkinson demonstrated how to turn some of our ideas into full sentences. Here are our examples –
