Our topic is...           Traders and Raiders

Big strong, powerful and brave, the Saxons wave their  battle axes and brandish their swords as they begin to invade Britain’s shores.

Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned.

Find out about the life of the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from. Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia – never before had such terror swept the land.


Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages…?

We created a display of stained glass windows and stories from the Gospels.
