During the show, classes will be sitting in rows in our Auditorium, alongside other classes. Please let us know beforehand if any pupils require to sit near an exit. Familiarise yourself with Harald's Viking Quest trail sheet and teachers notes beforehand.
Each class will take part in two activities:
Each class takes part in a 45-minute show, alongside other classes. During the show, pupils join Jason and his friend Gyoa on an extraordinary adventure into the Viking world. Expect songs, stories and myth-busting aplenty as pupils help the children search for a very important bracelet.
2. Gallery Visit
Classes will have time to spend in the relevant galleries for Viking related objects. Pupils can use Harald's Viking Quest trail sheet to explore the objects. As part of your time in the gallery, museum staff will provide object handling sessions. This is to allow your pupils to handle replica objects and so they can ask staff any questions they have about Vikings.
Classes will also have time planned into their day for snack/lunch.
I can compare aspects of people’s daily lives in the past with my own by using historical evidence or the experience of recreating an historical setting.
I can compare and contrast a society in the past with my own and contribute to a discussion of the similarities and differences.
I can investigate a Scottish historical theme to discover how past events or the actions of individuals or groups have shaped Scottish society.
