A group of Watton primary school pupils have produced art work to accompany a display in the town's museum.
As part of the Breakfast Club at Wayland Junior Academy, the pupils researched the town's Great Fire of 1674.
More than 60 houses and other properties were burnt down in the fire, which struck on April 25.
John and Jackie Greenbrook from Museum4Watton recently visited the school to meet the children and receive their pictures.
The pupils' vivid paintings are now featured within the museum's display about the fire.
