Crafty primary school children created Roman shields for an exhibition at Centrale shopping centre.
Year 3 pupils from Purley Oaks Primary School clubbed together to make 30 shields, which were displayed for two weeks last month, as part of a history a project.
As well as making replicas of shields used by soldiers the 90 children, aged seven and eight, produced information booklets about life in the Roman army and why the Romans flourished.
The project, run by the Schools Linking Network, is part of a national programme funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government and aims to connect classroom learning with local employers.
