Osbournby Primary School's Viking Day.

Class Three children welcome historical re-enactor Nigel Tate, or ‘Steinkeil’, to support their studies of the Viking period.

The day featured Viking games, a showcase of weapons and artefacts from the period, the giving of special Viking names, such as ‘Freya the Great’, long-boat making, and whole school performance.
