Overview: Welcome to the cold and barren land of Scandinavia. Join the vicious Vikings on their dangerous journeys across stormy seas to the welcoming, defenseless shores of Britain. Discover why the Vikings would ruthlessly raid in Britain and meet their various pagan Gods.

Read the story of the Viking Warrior Beowulf and how he battled terrifying monsters all over Scandinavia, before reenacting some of his heroics and starring in your own Beowulf epic!

Venture out in to the British city of Canterbury to walk in the footsteps of the Viking army that attacked and brutally murdered Archbishop Alphege of Canterbury back in 1012 AD.

Children will make shields covered in runes and will transform in to Vikings for our Viking day at the end of term. Children will wear Viking Outfits and take part in Viking Activities for a whole day of fierce fun.
