Year 5 had their annual visit from a Viking today as part of their history topic.
They experienced the shield wall, the game of cubs and Viking artefacts.
They also learnt about life in Viking times, famous leaders and weapons.
The children always show surprise at the stories, changes and customs from 1000 years ago.
It is very important that they get to experience this fascinating part of English history just like they will experience the impacts of world and Victorian history next year.
Many thanks to our heavily armed friend from Copeland who visited us once again.
