Perse Prep pupils journey to Saxon and Viking times

Year 4 pupils were transported back in time during an action-packed Saxon and Viking History Day.

Typical costumes from Saxon and Viking times were tried on, while children also explored objects and played games from those eras.

They also discovered more about runes – the letters used by Saxons and Vikings – and designed their own shields, as well having the chance to handle a range of weaponry from axes to staffs.

Pupils rounded off an exciting day by becoming fearsome warriors in a full-scale battle with sticks and shields on Leighton Lawn.
