Pupils took centre stage to put on a show for audiences in their latest production.

More than 50 youngsters from Year 3 and 4 at Whissendine Primary School got creative to produce their Greek-themed play, Heracles.

The pupils have been studying the Greeks and Greek mythology during spring term and the production was a culmination of what they had learned.

They were given the opportunity to design the costumes, props, script and songs, under the supervision and guidance of Year 3 teachers Caroline Handley and Emma Young, and Year 4 teacher Daniel Alfierie.

The production was held on Tuesday and Wednesday last week in front of teachers, parents and pupils.

Mrs Handley said: “The pupils organised everything themselves and we find that way it’s much more engaging for them.

“It was amazing seeing the kids so happy. They were really fired up and keen.

“They prepared it all by themselves, just with a little supervision and guidance from the teachers.

“I’m very proud of them all for their efforts.”
