Year 5 had a fantastic morning when they were visited by the Rattlebox Theatre Company.
The morning started with an hour of storytelling entitled "Sword Age, Axe Age" - an exciting collection of tales from Viking times. The children heard of the outrageous adventures of the Norse gods and their war with the giants through sagas full of danger, trickery and beheading!
This was followed by a Vikings’ weapons and warfare workshop. The children saw what the Vikings wore, what they used in battle, battle tactics of the time and they created their own shieldwall using realistic-looking foam/latex shields, weapons and helmets.
It was a morning full of fun and learning. Click here to see a video of what Year 5 got up to!
