Excited South Woodford schoolchildren have visited space, swum with sharks and toured Greenland.
All 345 pupils at Oakdale Junior School, in Oakdale Road, traversed the globe virtually last week thanks to Google Expeditions.
The schoolchildren used virtual reality headsets made by the internet giant to visit the trenches in the First World War, and other historic events.
Isabelle Frost, 9, said: “When we went to the moon everyone screamed with excitement.”
Aidan Oldfield, 10, added: “The Google cardboard virtual reality is amazing and I am sure everyone in my school loves it.
