The school tour is something both pupils and teachers often look forward to. A chance to leave the classroom behind and venture out into the world to see the historic sites described in our books, understand the environmental challenges facing our planet and connect with animals and nature.
With schools closed and strict rules in place to control the current pandemic, now may be a good time to check out some of the wonderful virtual tours available online for free. Why not organise a virtual outing with your pupils?
