The larger picture was taken at Chestnut Street Primary School, Ruskington. There, Year Five pupils had welcomed ‘Archon’, also known as Murray Edwards, to give them an insight into life in Ancient Greece.
The day started off with a reading of the Iliad. Then the children were able to try on armour and wield replica swords as Greek warriors.
After joining the youngsters for lunch, Archon then led the children out for a combat re-enactment, before finishing the day by telling them about the tale of The Odyssey, with the pupils acting out various parts.
The visit was held to coincide with the children’s topic on Ancient Greece.
The smaller two photographs formed part of the paper’s World Book Day round-up.
