Vikings

 
Accompany the Vikings as they invade, pillage and plunder their way around the Northern Hemisphere!

During your Ufton School trip, your group will learn about the Vikings’ attempts at settling and the struggle between the kingdom of Wessex and the Danes. The children learn about how the Vikings were able to explore widely, what they needed to do this, about different aspects of their lives and the fact that they didn’t always win. Their religion and belief in their gods significantly influenced their attitude to life and battles

Our Viking narrative will allow your children to experience Viking life, as it would have been. Whether it be for three days or one, your children will experience drama and fun in the activities that they do with us, all of which promote historical understanding, teamwork and problem solving.
