In this interactive workshop we will teach your students how to survive a Viking Raid.

Through exciting activities, engaging games, drama, performance, demonstration and role-play the children will learn first hand:

  • How to hide your monasteries' Holy relics from a Viking war band.
  • How to aim and fire your sling to defeat a Hurscarl warrior
  • The workshop will culminate an epic battle. Up to forty students will experience exactly what it would be like to fight in a shield wall! 


Imagining History Workshops:

Imagining History provides educational history workshops for primary schools that captivate and entertain. Our interactive sessions combine role-play, storytelling, demonstrations and drama and performance to bring history to life for your students. 

Each of our extensively researched workshop themes, such as the Stone Age and Ancient Egypt, incorporate on-your-feet activities and high energy performance, allowing every single student to be involved and learn through doing.  

We bring our KS2 workshops to schools all over the UK and ensure that our workshops offer excellent value for money. We can even run two different themes in one day, for example Stone Age and Vikings or Ancient Egypt and Saxons, allowing us to cater for any budget.
