From winning a national championship to fundraising to visiting the Royal Norfolk Show - we have received some brilliant photos from Norfolk's schools.
Langley Preparatory School at Taverham Hall are national champions - the girls' football team became the first from Norfolk to ever win a Independent Schools National final.
The team overcame nine other national finalists to lift the cup at St George's Park venue for the third Smith Construction Girls U11 Independent Schools Cup with 100 girls taking part.
The schools were split into two groups - Group B was competitive with Langley Prep finishing top. They dominated their first league games, winning 3-0 and 5-1 against Lady Barn House (Cheshire) and Gatehouse School (East London). They had to overcome 1-0 half-time deficits in their next two games, but some spectacular goals from Issy and Beau saw them beat Blackheath 2-1 and Warwick Prep 3-1 to top the group.
Despite falling behind early in the semi-final Langley Prep recovered with four second-half goals to defeat Danes Hill and earn a place in the final against St Aubyn's.

Langley Prep raced into an early 2-0 lead with some excellent attacking football. A third goal looked to have secured the win but credit to St Aubyn's who never gave up and got a deserved consolation late on.
Hundreds of pupils from all over the county headed to the Norfolk Showground on Wednesday and Thursday for the Royal Norfolk Show. The show days included entering competitions, looking at the animals and farming equipment, learning about various careers and collecting numerous stickers!

Some of Sparhawk Infant School's Year 1 children were invited to the show by the Food and Farming Trust and the Rare Breed Survival Trust to help look after the sheep. The sheep, named by the children Barbara and Larry, had spent a week at the school in the spring as part of the Learning About Livestock Project. Whilst helping out, the children also got to meet Sophie the Countess of Wessex.
