Sigurd and the Dragon

Arthur Rackham 1911

Sigurd and the Dragon takes the pupils back 1,000 years to the early Viking age in Britain. Using highly immersive virtual reality, they will embark on an impossible and unforgettable field trip to an authentic Viking Longhouse to hear the classic Norse tale of how Sigurd killed the greedy dragon Fafnir. The story is carved on a Christian cross in a churchyard in Halton Lancashire and pupils will also visit the cross viewing it as it remains today. This is backed up by 5 ActiveWorksheets that display Augmented Reality artefacts exploring themes in viking history from ‘Raiders and Traders’ to ‘Pagans’. This culminates in an activity covering Green Screen and animation as the pupils tell their tales from Norse Mythology.
