Schools Day


Information for Teachers

As part of the largest Viking Festival in the UK, we would like to invite school groups to step back in time with us to experience the England of the Vikings and Saxons.

KS2 classes will be invited to visit us at Locko Park to take a journey through the England of 1000 years ago. They will meet a variety of people from the past: warriors, farmers, traders, healers, weavers, churchmen and cooks, Danes and English. They will embark on a quest to support King Cnut (Canute) to further establish control of his new realm.

The day will create an immersive experience for children studying the 'Struggle for England 793-1066' element of the National Curriculum History syllabus, enabling them to further appreciate some of the complexity of our nation's beginnings.
