Broadland area school children show off creative side at Bewilderwood

Children from primary schools in the Broadland area took to the stage to show off their creative abilities to more than 200 parents.

Pupils from six local primary schools had developed poems, plays and songs inspired by Bewilderwood treehouse adventure park, near Wroxham, where the children took to the storytelling stage to perform their creations.

There were also creative workshop sessions, run by Bewilderwood's chief storyteller Sheila and mentored by students from Broadland High School, to inspire the children to build their confidence and bring out their creative sides.

There were 17 pupils from St John's Primary School in Hoveton performing 'Carnival Chaos', five pupils from Rackheath Primary School performing 'Friends, Boots and Marsh Marshmallows' and 13 pupils from Salhouse Primary School in their 'Maple, the Secret Baby' performance.

Four pupils from Neatishead Primary School then read three poems; Spotty and Mildred, Bewilderbats and Mildred the Crocklebog.
