VIKINGS DRAMA WORKSHOPS

Vikings Drama Workshops help children to develop their understanding of who the Vikings were, where they came from and how they lived.

Choose from a Learn and Present or Explore Day and give your pupils a fantastic insight into the world of the Vikings.  This day covers geography, history, poetry, drama and more, as pupils develop their confidence, communication and team work – all while doing curriculum learning.

LEARN AND PRESENT:

For one class of pupils. A fun, immersive day with a performance!

A Learn and Present day is a fun and engaging day that really motivates your pupils to learn and discover.  They’ll spend a full day with one of our drama practitioners, participating in Viking themed drama activities, games and songs.  Pupils have loads of fun, all while learning about the topic.  Across the day they’ll explore what life was like for The Vikings, what they did, who they were and where they came from.

At the end of the day the class present their learning as a performance which is packed with information and facts. The performance is developed by the class across the day and is a huge achievement for them all.  The performance gives children the chance to share their learning and makes the experience both memorable and meaningful.

EXPLORE:

An action-packed day of workshops for up to 4 classes.

Split the day into either 2 or 4, and our practitioner will guide each class through a fun and engaging drama workshop themed around the Vikings.

The Explore format is perfect for larger schools as it gives you multiple workshops in one school day.

Each class works on the topic, learning historical information, facts and figures.  They also spend time thinking about how life for The Vikings was different from our lives today. All learning is delivered through drama games and activities which makes the session fun and accessible to all.

You can also build an EXPLORE day with 4 different topics based on the needs of each class. Pick and Mix your topics from across our wide range of options.
