There has been a Viking attack in the Walpoles- but all done in the best possible taste and, happily, with no casualties.
Children in Year 3 at the Anthony Curton Primary School at Walpole St Peter travelled back in time to investigate the lives, beliefs and customs of the Vikings.
During the two-day celebrations, the children experienced a range of activities aimed at helping them understand more fully how these ancient warriors lived.
The children made Viking musical instruments learnt the art of weaving, investigated Viking religious beliefs, listened to Viking stories and riddles, and watched a display of arm and leg wrestling.
The event, held in school, culminated in a Viking banquet, where the children ate oat cakes, bread, butter and non-alcoholic mead – all of which they had made themselves.
Class Teacher, Mr Bill White, said: “The children had a fabulous time- it’s an experience they will remember for a long time.”
