The Year 6 pupils tested their head for heights on the climbing wall during a visit to Kingswood activity centre in Overstrand, north Norfolk.

They also took on the ‘Jacob’s ladder’ high ropes challenge, working together to climb a series of giant rungs with ever-increasing gaps.

Other highlights of the week’s action-packed schedule included 15-a-side volleyball and a hike up one of Norfolk’s most famous hills – the 207m Beeston Bump.

Teacher Angela Neal said: “The trip is a fantastic way for our Year 6s to kick off their last year at our school.
