Adventurous youngsters at a Suffolk primary school were yesterday scaling the vertiginous heights of a climbing wall during a series of activities promoting unusual sports.

Pupils at Benhall St Mary Primary School were invited to haul their way to the summit of the training equipment that had been hired specially for the day.

Class teacher Layla Silbert said the children “really enjoyed” it and expressed her surprise at how many were able to reach the top. “It’s been great for the children to have an experience of something unusual that they would not come across at school under normal circumstances,” she said.

The school has also been introducing the children to other speciality sports including archery, karate, sailing, and air rifle practice.

“It’s good to give them a taster in something that might spark an interest they can carry on,” Ms Silbert said.
