Covid-19

Our service has been redesigned to comply with the UK governments guidance regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Viking School Days brings history to life in your classroom. All of our sessions are presented by a qualified teacher with a degree in history and a passion for inspiring young people. Our service is insured, fully risk assessed and has been inspired by the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum.

Your students can brave an Atlantic storm with Olaf The Beardless onboard a Viking longship, or swear an oath to the Anglo-Saxon king Oswald Whiteblade and enter his service. With plenty of artefacts to explore, riddles to solve and challenges to overcome, our sessions are both fun and educational.

We also provide a range of online videos and activities to allow your students to further immerse themselves in the world of the Vikings. Join Olaf The Beardless by the fireside and listen to one of his sagas. Discover your Viking name, design your own Viking character and impress Odin with your quiz score.

We provide a unique learning experience which encourages active participation through role-play, questioning and interactive activities. Our service is not merely a cost effective alternative to organising a trip, it is also designed so that young people can relate to their past in a fun and engaging manner. In the words of one teacher: 'It was an experience I know they will not forget in a hurry!'
