Schoolchildren build cities of Lego in Cromer
Hundreds of schoolchildren have been making cities out of building bricks this week as part of a fun project with a range of educational benefits.
Cromer Academy hosted the event and invited pupils from its cluster of feeder schools: Suffield Park Infants, Cromer Junior, Sidestrand Hall, Northrepps Primary, St Mary's Primary at Roughton, The Belfry at Overstrand, and Gresham Village Primary.
The three-day event involved nearly 350 children who each spent half a day building with Lego bricks.
Event organiser Jill Bullimore, the Cromer Cluster enrichment co-ordinator, was delighted with the Lego workshops, which involved pupils from years two, five and eight.
'The children were transfixed and totally absorbed for the whole session' she said.

Cromer Cluster lead headteacher Marc Goodliffe said the project had been a huge success and was one of many large-scale events that the cluster was planning over the course of the next year.
'We chose to hold Lego days because of the great educational benefits of the product,' said Mr Goodliffe.

'Not only were the children designing and making, but also developing their creative, social, mathematical and scientific skills.
'I have never seen so much Lego and I'm sure the children will remember this day as a very nice time.'
