The Vikings are covered in Key Stage 2 History in England, and are popular in school teaching elsewhere in the UK and further afield.
This Micromusical includes topics including:
the Viking invasions of the British Isles
Norse Mythology (Valhalla, Asgard, Odin, Thor, Frey, Freya, Tyr, the children of Loki, Fenrir)
the present-day effect of the Vikings on British culture
The micro-musicals have enriched our curriculum and have enabled the topics taught in class to come alive. Through the micro-musicals, the children have gained a deeper and broader understanding of the curriculum and have developed a bank of rich language, which has supported their writing outcomes. The micro-musicals have provided an excellent opportunity to teach music through all areas of the curriculum and we have been able to use music as a platform to learn history, science, geography and literature. They have been a good value for money and a valuable resource.
