To help us with our writing, we re-enacted a Viking vs. Saxons battle on the common. We brought and made our own weapons and shields, and learned about battle tactics. The Saxons were more sophisticated by using a V-shape attack, backed up with archers. But, the Vikings just moved forwards in a straight line. Insults were hurled and we learned how to stage fight. End result: Saxons 1 – 0 Vikings
