What are our Workshops like?

 

A typical day plan is below. We change this around depending on numbers and break and lunch durations. However, this should give you a good guide.

  1. Introduce Bjorn and explain back story and how he arrived at the school today, which will include a brief Viking history and a summary of what will be happening during the day.
  2. Write your name in runes / Choose a Viking name. Certificate of achievement to Bjorn’s school of Vikings.
  3. Raiding / Navigating talk
  4. Clothes display & talk. Clothes try on.
  5. Q&A
  6. Viking home chat - choose a Viking job
  7. Food display, guess which are the authentic Viking foods / Q&A
  8. Try using a quern stone milling stone to grind your grain, look at some Viking bread. Let’s play some Viking board games
  9. Battle talk
  10. Weaponry display and then into battle with shields & spears (safety ones of course) for children and the children form a shield wall all call battle cries
  11. Multiple choice quiz to check everything has been taken in. We always see top marks, with this fun way of learning!
  12. Bjorn’s farewell/ pictures

 

What makes us a great choice?


We always really enjoy seeing the enthusiasm and excitement from the children and the results of our end of day quiz really show the way this assists learning. Nearly always full marks!

We have a real passion for Viking History, which we hope shows.
