The Vikings
(Key Stage 2)
(Third Class - Sixth Class)

A specially formulated 3 hour education and activity programme ideal for the annual school trip. This programme combines 1½ hours of Viking-themed watersports at Blue Green Yonder's Castle Island with a 1½ hour museum Viking education programme.

Blue Green Yonder at Castle Island
Just like your Viking ancestors before you strike out across the waters of Lough Erne in your canoe before raiding an Island with the force of Thor's hammer and pillaging what treasure you can find. If anyone fights back then send them to Valhalla!

1. Vikings in Scandinavia
Using role-play children are welcomed into a Viking house where they investigate Viking food, clothing and social hierarchy.

2. Vikings in Ireland
Undertake an archaeological dig, uncover Viking artefacts and find out what they reveal about the people who once owned them.

3. Vikings Designer Workshop
Vikings designed and produced different types of jewellery and armour. Pupils can make their own Viking object to take home.

Duration: 3 hours. Admission charge applies, teachers free.
