The whole of Year 6 was involved in the musical play, with those not taking acting roles helping out backstage with lighting, sound and props.

Mr Amies said: 'A lot of Year 6 is about doing well academically, so this brings children's time at primary school to an exciting climax and gives them a chance to do something creative.'
