The Vikings

Viking workshop for primary schools ks1 ks2 Battle Drill

"A wonderfully interactive and immersive workshop. The children learned masses without even being aware of learning. Extremely well organised and all the children were fully focused and involved throughout. Choosing a 'favourite bit' was almost impossible as they enjoyed all of it."

R Knight, Dulwich Preparatory School, Cranbook.
