Schools' Day Thursday 24th June 2021

Information for Teachers

On Thursday 24th June 2021, as part of the largest ever 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 back to 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 his control of his new realm.

The day will create an immersive experience for children studying the Anglo Saxon and Viking Struggle for England 793-1066' element of the National Curriculum History syllabus, enabling them to further appreciate first-hand the England of 1000 years ago.
