There was a certain buzz around the corridors of Cromer Junior School this week, when head teacher Whil De Neve donned a black and orange striped costume to take on the role of quizmaster in a whole school spelling bee.
The event, which is held termly, was the idea of deputy head teacher Suzanne Ashpole, who set the questions.
'It was really part of a school improvement plan to raise attainment and adding an element of competition has certainly had an impact,' she said.
Difficulty levels are set according to children's ages, with Year 6 pupils asked to spell tough words including mischievous and exaggerate.
Top prize this term went to 11-year-old reigning champion Isla Powell, with second place going to Bethany Pycroft and Paisley Ward and Kelsie Bonello bagging joint third.
