Viking Theme Day At CONKERS, In The Heart Of The National Forest Wednesday 13th March - Thursday 14th March
Swadlincote

Our Viking Days Live like a Viking. Children explore the roles and tasks of the different members of the Viking family and compare this to their own families. They discover what family life was like. Viking Beliefs. Come and listen to a traditional Viking Saga. Children discover why storytelling was a very important part of Viking culture: stories of brave Vikings, and of the many gods and how they are worshipped. A Viking Voyage. Why did the Vikings take to the seas and make such far journeys? Where did they go and how did they know where they were? The children take up the oars and explore life on board. Viking Raiders. Do you have what it takes to be a Viking Raider? Learn about Viking battle tactics, weapons, and what made them really go berserk! Viking Traders. What makes a market a market? And how is money being used? At the market, children explore the different food and goods for sale and re-enact the trading process. Viking Clothing. When Winter is 'Looming', make sure you've got the skills to create warm and comfortable clothes.

    We’re looking forward to welcoming you and your class to CONKERS soon for your Viking or Roman or Stone Age Heritage Theme Day. Feedback from previous years has told us that many teachers like to prepare their class for an educational visit to CONKERS, because, the children get so much more out of the day if they have touched on the topics in class beforehand. So here is a brief description of the workshops your class will be enjoying in a few weeks’ time when they visit CONKERS.
