Youngsters have been scaling the peaks around their school in support of a hiker who is raising money for their school.

Pupils at Bressingham Primary School recreated the three highest peaks in the UK, Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon as parent Oliver Kenyon tackles the real thing.

Year two teacher Joanna Lewis said: “The children really enjoyed the afternoon. At each ‘peak’ we completed some physical challenges.

“It was good fun and we discussed with the children how Ollie would have to be resilient and persevere even when it became tough. We linked this with what they were doing with their challenges with lots of star jumps, crawling on all fours and other activities.”

There are no plans on how the money will be spent but the school is hoping to open a Forest Classroom in the near future.
