The children from St Georges Primary School, in St Georges, started rehearsing for The Jungle Book after they finished their SATs exams in May.

They have also been studying the book, which was written by Rudyard Kipling in 1894, as part of their English lessons.

Year six teacher Annie Ford said: “It is a cross-curricular activity.

“They have been doing really well in the rehearsals.”

The performance is based on the Disney version of The Jungle Book, although it is a junior version of the show.

And teachers have been kept busy by creating and finding the costumes and designing and building the scenery.

This has involved pupils dressing up as monkeys, bees, a bear and a snake.
