What involves an Eiffel Tower made of spaghetti, racing Maltesers, dancing competitions and charades?
It was the Northgate Games at Northgate High School in Dereham, which saw students compete is a range of unusual challenges.
The students represented houses and were tested in competitions based on performing arts, science and logic, humanities and art and technology.
Pupils from surrounding primary schools also joined in.
Each team of students collected tokens in the first half of the day to help complete a challenge in the second half of the day, where house points were collected.
The idea was to engage as many students as possible in team-based competition.
Northgate High School head teacher Glyn Hambling said: 'It's been a great way of getting the students to work together and think creatively to overcome challenges.
