From cooking competitions and welly throwing to learning about the importance of mental wellbeing - it's been another busy week in schools around the county.
Little Melton Primary School has won a national cookery competition run by cooker manufacturer Belling. The Eagle Owls Year 5/6 class' 3D montage design of a Croque Monsieur toasted sandwich, described what they like about the meal, how to make it and what ingredients made it healthy.
The school has been named as a Belling Cookery Club and will receive £2000 worth of cooking appliances. Teaching assistant, Mrs Kerry Awbery, explained that winning will have a positive impact on the small village school and that they "are absolutely delighted to win, and the children are very excited about it!"

The initiative was put into place to tackle participation barriers that female students face in relation to school sport and physical activity.
Research shows that the obstacles female students face are a mix of practical and emotional pressures such as fear of judgement, lacking confidence, not having enough time, period issues and previous negative PE experiences.

Children at Town Close School had a great time during the annual Inter-House Welly Wanging competition which took place on the school grounds.
Norwich School's Upper 4 children spent a morning in Norwich Cathedral learning about the importance of mental wellbeing. The day organised jointly between the school and Norwich Cathedral Cannon Mission Pastoral saw pupils explore the emotions difficult events can generate, and how to handle their feelings and support others when they are struggling.
The aim of the How Are You Feeling? Day was to equip pupils with some of the tools needed to recognise their own mental wellbeing, and offered practical advice for what to do when they are feeling vulnerable. Feedback from pupils and parents was very positive, and there are plans for the Cathedral and Norwich School to offer the event for other schools in Norfolk in future.
