Vikings besieged a Norham this week – but there’s no need to panic, it’s all in the name of fun and learning. Norham will be the scene of a two-day Viking-themed education extravaganza on Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th March, when around 160 local primary school pupils descend to take part in a learning day with a difference. Children from Years 4 and 5, aged between 8 and 10, will bake Viking bread to dip in Nordic soup and get crafty making and decorating their own mini wooden Viking longboats.
