Belford First School sends 23 little warriors

Belford First School sent 23 of their year 3 and 4 pupils to invade the island as part of their Viking project and the Peregrini schools educations programme.

Resourceful Peregrini staff created a 4.5 metre long Viking ship (from old cardboard boxes) and helped the children to make their own shields, all of which awaited them in the Old Lifeboat House.

The fun and games were helped along by Ragnar Hairy Breeks, a Viking King, and by Elizabeth Baker, storyteller.

The ship is being stored at the moment but if anyone would like it donated please contact Ros 

The Peregrini Lindisfarne Landscape Partnership Scheme is managed by a Partnership of professional and community representatives from Holy Island and surrounding shore side area. The lead organisation for the Scheme is the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Partnership, hosted by Northumberland County Council.
