Hornchurch students dress up as Vikings
Youngsters had a blast with the past when they held a Viking Day at their school.
The year 3 pupils from Langtons Junior School in Westlands Avenue, Hornchurch dressed up as Vikings on Monday October 8.
Teacher Eve Rech said: “The day was a total success and the children went home learning a lot more about Vikings than they did at the start of the day.
“They are still talking about it days after the event.”
The students had fun playing games and taking part in competitions similar to the ones that the Vikings would have enjoyed.
