The clock rolled back for a day at one Isle primary school, when pupils experienced Viking times for themselves.

Helga the Viking journeyed to St Martin’s C of E Primary School at Owston Ferry from North Lincolnshire Museum. Children got in to character with her by dressing as Vikings themselves, in costumes that Helga provided.

Teacher Sophie Brown said: “Everyone enjoyed the day and the children asked lots of questions. They learned about what Vikings ate, what they wore, where they lived, and they tried to identify artefacts.” Young Vikings above are (l-r) Owen Woodcock, 11, Chloe Richardson, 11, Bradley Turner, 10., and visitor Helga.
