From learning about the significance of the D-Day landings to recycling items to create artwork - we've received some fantastic photos for our School Report.
Last week's 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings on the French coast was commemorated at schools across Norfolk.
The Town Close School Year 6 children designed and created artwork to mark the anniversary. Their work was displayed in the school for pupils and parents to view and reflect.
Derek, a Year 6 student at Howard Junior School, brought in original newspapers from the 1940s to read to his class as part of their studies on D-Day and the war.
Aurora Eccles School held a competition for pupils to design a D-Day medal which had to include various elements such as the national colours of the Allies, a symbol of war and the soldiers' sacrifice and a reference to the armed forces which took part. The competition was won by Logan.

Harford Manor School hosted an art exhibition at the school as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Arts Festival Open Studios event. The exhbition included work from pupils they had produced from items that would usually be thrown away as part of their Recycyling and Green Issues topic. There was a mixture of individual pieces, class collages and whole school collaborations on show, including a giant jellyfish made from old plastic packaging! Classes took the time to conduct some art appreciation work critiquing the pieces on display.
Year 3 at Kenninghall Primary School have raised £631.26 for the World Land Trust's 'Buy an Acre' project. Following a story and a discussion about global warming, the children were inspired to take action. They raised money through a bake sale, a dress down day, a stall at the local church fete and donations from family and friends. The money will protect six and a quarter acres of rainforest from future destruction.
