Olympic star Amy Smith made a splash when she visited children at Antingham and Southrepps Primary School.

The Team GB swimmer had children and staff alike diving into a series of fitness activities.

In a round of fitness circuits, pupils trained like the pros as they did a minute of star jumps and press ups each.

As a cool-down after their hard work, Amy gave an awe-inspiring assembly recounting how she came to win her silver Common Wealth medals and her gold European Championships medals, after being scared of swimming when she began at 7 years old.

She also shared her memories of the London 2012 Olympics, prompting a flurry of questions from children at the school.
