The Great Viking Invasion

Join our practitioners as they weave an interactive story with your students focusing on Viking raids, invasions and their battle for England.

Your students will come face to face with Fridlief Ragnarsson, son of the legendary Viking warrior, Ragnar Lodbrok. Our historical character will engage your students in the world of the Vikings, encouraging them to question the Viking civilisation and how their behaviours and actions helped to shape the world we know today.

Our workshop includes an interactive timeline which takes your students back in time focusing on the famous explorers, a key elements to being a Viking and significant events in Viking History. This allows your students to build a coherent understanding of the chronological narrative from the Vikings to present day, with an emphasis on change and technological development overtime.

Your students will use their bodies to form a Viking Longboat and learn about the different aspects of travelling and navigation in the Viking time. Learn about the oars, sail, shallow hull and dragon heads of the Drakkar ship through our interactive activity which helps the students visualise the ship with the use of their own bodies as the equipment. The class will be asked to navigate the rough seas from Scandinavia to find riches in the West in our fun interactive game guaranteed to get the whole class involved and working together.

Allow your students to be educated on Viking weapons and armour by our real life Vikings. This tactile activity will inspire your students to imagine what it would be like to fight as a Viking warrior. They will be taught how to wield a sword as a Viking warrior and be challenged with defeating the historical character in a duel.

Now that the class are working together as a war band it is time to step up their warrior skills as we teach them about the berserker Viking warriors. Your class will be taught how to unleash their terrifying war cry in order to scare off their enemies and steal all of their treasure. They will be told about different invasions and how these can be avoided with the Danegeld payment.

Your students will then partake in a group roleplaying activity as we re-enact the legend of Ragnarok. Are your students prepared for the Doom of the Gods?!

Towards the end of the session your students are encouraged to ask any and all Viking questions to our practitioners, who will be able to answer their questions. This enables the children to think reflectively and encourages the development of their soft skills as they gather information from direct interaction with the Viking warrior. They can even ask us about regional Viking history for your area!

Finally will the students be able to pass their last test in our quiz round and become a true Viking warrior? The students will discover weird and wonderful facts about the Vikings on their way to proving they should be part of the war band!
