Making writing fast and fun

Vikings writing workshop (KS1-KS2-KS3)

Get your students writing epic Viking stories with a workshop and assembly from Creative Writing Club founder Robin Price. Robin is the author of 15 children's books including the cult hit Beowuff series – where Viking dogs battle against Anglo Saxon dogs in a world where humans have never existed.

Interactive assembly

Get pupils engaged and ready to write with an assembly introducing the class to the fascinating world of the Scandinavian invaders and their longships, sagas, skaldic poets and legendary gods like Thor, Loki and Odin. In this interactive assembly your class will: find out how to tame a Saxon, take their place in the shield wall and hear of Odin's final battle at Ragnarok and more! The assembly ends as two class champions battle each other in a fun quiz. Plus: you'll find out about the English amateur archaeologist responsible for the the whole 'horns on the helmet' mix up.

Epic story writing

After the assembly pupils will be primed and ready to write their stories in pairs using Creative Writing Club's foolproof Viking writing frames and interactive apps.

Feedback from teachers:

“Robin’s assembly was a fantastic combination of facts, story telling and knockabout comedy, that, whilst entertaining the whole school, also cunningly prepared the ground for their own story writing…”

“Robin’s sessions not only gave children a structure for planning a story, but really excited and inspired them so that they couldn’t wait to get writing!” Richard Smith, Deputy Head, Trafalgar School

Extension activities

This workshop is sure to generate some strong writing which we can upload to our epic Hall of Fame.
