Two teachers have been presented with an award as recognition for their work to develop languages in their schools.
Lizzie Brooks from Mulbarton Junior School and Jane Hamilton from Little Melton Primary School have been given the bronze Linguamarque award
Mrs Hamilton said languages were an important part of the school's curriculum.
She said: 'In the past, we have held French days and European languages days where we offered exciting cultural activities for the children including a French café, Spanish flamenco dancing and German food tasting.
'We were really excited to be awarded our bronze Linguamarque award as it recognises the enthusiasm and hard work the children have put into learning languages at our school.'
She said the Little Melton school taught Spanish in Reception and Key Stage One and French in Key Stage Two. The school also runs a popular Latin Club.
Bev Theobald, headteacher of Mulbarton Junior School, said: 'I am thrilled that the school have received this award in recognition of the excellent work being done across the school to ensure the children have experience of languages.
