Vikings

Resources to support teachers
English, History, Vikings

Directly designed to assist with the requirement to study the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England to the time of Edward the Confessor in the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum, our incredible resources will bring this topic to life right in front of your pupils eyes.

We have designed the resources below to help your pupils learn, whether they are in the classroom or at home.

Some resources were created during lockdown and are specifically designed for those pupils learning at home.

Download the Vikings Teachers Pack (pdf, 158 KB) for helpful information and tips on how these resources can assist in your lesson planning.

If you are planning to visit the Royal Armouries in Leeds check out our Vikings: Raider vs Trader Workshop. Or if you would like a digital visit by our Education team, check out our Vikings: Live Stream Workshop.
