School is out for summer, but schools across the county had a busy end to the summer term.
Litcham School had another successful Chocolate Day. Teams of students are set the task to design a new chocolate product and its packaging before pitching their design to a management team from Kinnerton's Chocolate Factory.
The winning team of Year 7 students were rewarded with a trip to the Fakenham factory to have a tour and see their design realised in the kitchen; they all agreed that it was amazing to see the bar in its wrapper design and taste their marshmallow creation. Tia, a member of the team said, "We feel like real chocolate inventors now just like Willy Wonka."
Year 5 children at Avenue Junior School hosted an Enterprise Fair and made a profit of £930. The project, delivered by Virgin Money as part of their nationwide Make £5 Grow scheme, saw teams made up of six pupils lent the equivalent of £5 per pupil to start their own mini business. Helped by lessons on topics such as teamwork and marketing, they then used the loan to fund the creation of a product or service.
The fair included cakes, bookmarks, stress balls and smoothies for sale,while the services on offer included hair braiding, face painting and a football penalty shout-out.

At £930, it's over six times the average raised by the 1,800 schools who have previously taken part in the scheme since its launch in 2011.
