The event, which is now in its twelfth year, culminated in a two-day exhibition open to parents, friends and community members.

This year’s theme, myths and legends, saw pupils work with teachers and artists Kat and Chris Hall to produce artworks including unicorn mobiles, dream catchers, scratch art Greek vases, cross stitch dragons and mythical creatures modelled in clay.

They also helped Mr and Ms Hall produce a series of circular mosaics, which will go on permanent display outside the school.

Cromer Juniors deputy head Suzanne Ashpole said the arts week was one of the highlights of the school year.
