They do things at high speed at Weston Hills Primary School as their latest production, Around the World in Eighty Minutes, proves.

All 142 pupils took to the stage for three packed performances with individual classes showcasing their talents in drama and song as they represented a different part of the world.

Karl Gernert, director of Spalding’s Act II Theatre Company, worked with each class as they developed their contributions to the show, which was well received by audiences.

Head teacher Jane Fitzgerald said: “Some of the parents are saying it was absolutely fantastic. We had so many positive comments from it.”

The production was immensely beneficial for the pupils as they learned about continents and countries – and developing their performance skills helped them grow in confidence.

As well as class contributions, the school choir performed On the Road to Nowhere, there was Japanese drumming from the school’s Taiko Club and staff showed how a mix-up in travel plans can go awry as they dressed for Barbados and ended up in Antartica.
