Year six children were given an insight into the world of journalism during a special visit at their school.
Emma Moylan, who works for media agency Digital1 in Manchester, visited Poplars Primary School in Lowestoft to share her journey into the industry and inspire the next generation of writers.
There was also an opportunity for pupils to showcase their own newspaper reports, with several saying they would consider becoming a journalist.
'Sharing my passion for journalism with these pupils and staff at Poplars was a truly memorable experience,' said Ms Moylan. 'The students are full of character and their work displays such imagination and talent.'
Teacher Olivia Gillard added: 'It was a delight to have Emma share her experience and expertise with us. The children gained so much from seeing how skills they are being taught in school transfer to amazing careers.
