VIKINGS marauded into a village school for a series of special lessons.

Year 3 pupils at Steeple Morden Primary School welcomed the History off the Page group for a day of Viking-related activities.

Susan Harley, Year 3 teacher, said: "In the morning the children acted as Viking settlers, making candles, sculpting with clay, and weaving.

"Then in the afternoon they took the role of archaeologists and carried out some excavations.
