Some pil­lag­ing and pot­tery for young Vik­ings

Staines Informer - - NEWS -

YOUNG­STERS at an En­gle­field Green school have trav­elled back in time to 8th cen­tury Scan­di­navia to live a day in the life as a Vik­ing.

Pupils at St Jude’s CofE Ju­nior School re-en­acted a bat­tle as the Norse sea trav­ellers as part of its Vik­ing Day last week.

Led by the Hob­gob­lin The­atre Com­pany, the chil­dren also cre­ated a mu­seum of Nordic art.

Chloe Jones, Year 5 teacher, said: “The chil­dren and adults thor­oughly en­joyed the per­for­mance. It was very funny and ed­u­ca­tional, and the per­form­ers en­gaged real- ly well with the chil­dren.”

Ge­orge Lee, 10, said: “The artist made a war­rior from a ball of clay which was really clever and we had to copy it, which was really good fun.”

Emily West, also 10, said she thought ev­ery­thing went very smoothly and the the­atre was great fun.
