The Jorvik Centre: Schools Week 08/02/21 - 12/02/21

This week, The Jorvik Centre in York are holding an online event called ‘The Jorvik Centre: Schools Week’, ahead of their main online festival during half term called ‘That JORVIK Viking Thing’.

By clicking this link you will have access to pre-recorded videos based on topics such as Sagas, Helmets, Antler Workers and Hnefatafl (a Viking board game). There will also be readings from best-selling children’s authors who have Norse themes books, such as Cressida Cowell and Francesca Simon.

There is also an immersive video around the Jorvik Centre’s main attraction – their re-creation of Viking-age Coppergate!

We will be focusing on the Vikings more closely after half term, so this is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about them before then if you wish!
