Our Viking Ship that is armed with shields personally designed by each pupil in Trumpet Tree Class. The shield is divided into four quadrants - each quarter representing something that is important to each individual pupil.
 
The artwork is Trumpet's 'Inside the Viking's' project (based on the book 'Inside the Villains') and explores different aspects of Viking life and mythology.
