Pupils from Norwich Primary Academy took part in a three-hour literacy and vocabulary workshop on Monday before heading to north Norfolk for a day of creative inspiration on Tuesday.

On the trip, the 11 year six pupils visited Blickling Hall and toured the stately home's grounds including its woods, mausoleum, lake and formal gardens.

They were treated to a fish and chips lunch in Cromer from Mary Jane's Restaurant.

The children spent the afternoon at Cromer's RNLI lifeboat station, where they met crew members and learned how the lifeboat operates – including the chance to try on some kit.
