‘Saxons and Vikings’ learning session for home educator families @ Weston Museum
Nov 14 @ 11:00 – 13:30

Come and learn about the Saxons and Vikings in another hands-on and interactive session, with a mixture of handling objects, craft activities and dressing up. Learn about how the Saxons and Vikings fought, handle some trading objects, make your own rune-stick and dress up as a Saxon or Viking. This session is an adaptation of the learning session currently offered to schools, about which you can find out more here. The standard sessions are aimed primarily at 7-11 year olds/Key stage 2, but this session will be welcoming a slightly wider range of around 5-12 year olds.

The session incorporates a break of 30 minutes in the middle to stop for lunch, why not try our lovely café, which has a children’s special sandcastle offer (not included). Pre-booking is essential for this session and needs to be made before Monday 6th November, as numbers are limited; you can book and pay for a place at the museum’s main reception from Monday 18th September.
