The Viking big weekend!
The Vikings came to Abberley Hall and gave the pupils an insight into how they lived, how they fought, and how they spent their time when they weren't fighting.
As the sun went down on the Saturday night, the pupils gathered around the Viking campfire to hear tales told of Norse Gods and a glimpse into the life style of the Vikings. The following day the pupils where immersed fully into the lifestyle. They learnt how they dyed their wool, how they weaved the wool, how they made their coins and what board games they played. Pupils then learnt fighting techniques: their weaponry and armour, spear throwing, long bows, sling shots and the iconic shield war.
The day ended with an 'interesting' demonstration of a wrestling game and a ruthless show fight.
