Youngsters at Northrepps Primary School came up with career choices ranging from farmer and footballer, to doctor and Disney princess, as part of women and children's charity ActionAid's annual 'Big Me' day.
The initiative, which is expected to raise £50,000 for the charity's work supporting poor and disadvantaged people around the world, saw youngsters at 300 schools across the UK don outfits showing what they want to be when they grow up.
Among the dreamed-of careers at Northrepps were prospective pop star and future firefighter, to vet, midwife, computer game designer and racing car driver.
Five-year-old Lauren's job choice was police officer, as she wanted to: 'arrest people and help people', Riley, 4, dreamed of playing for Norwich City so he could 'tackle everybody', six-year-old pals Paige and Molly both plumped for hairdresser, while Anthony, 6, who opted to be action hero James Bond, went to school wearing his dad's tie and a 007-style shirt.
'I like him because he does dangerous stuff like fighting baddies and he's got a car that goes under water,' he said.
