KS2 Production - The Jungle Book

Posted on: July 3rd 2015

For the last half term, Key Stage 2 have been busily preparing for our end of year production of  The Jungle Book. The rehearsals have been enjoyable, exciting and sometimes a little challenging too! The children and teachers have collaborated well together to work on our acting and singing skills and we have all tried to play our part.

It is not just the Form 6 children with roles in the play as Form 3 are the elephants, Form 4 are the monkeys and we in Form 5 play the various parts of the jungle itself! Our teachers have taken the time to teach us the choreography for our dances and practise our scenes with us so we can work on our reactions to what is happening on the stage.

Tuesday, we had a very hot but successful dress rehearsal and it was great to see everyone in their fabulous costumes. The bright colours of the clothes and the prospect of having KS1 watching us added to the excitement and we were also really impressed with the amazing tropical backdrop that even included a beautiful waterfall and blooming flowers! Mrs Pakkos and Miss Ficken had done a fantastic job with the set and it really set the scene for the story. Our favourite costumes were Maria’s stunning blue feathered bird of paradise outfit and the inventive rock costume that Roman had constructed. The furry monkeys also looked brilliant and Form 3 had even collaged their own elephant masks which were really effective.

We are really looking forward to the real performance as our friends and family will get to see us and we can show them how hard we have been working. We also want to say a big thank you to Mrs Holt and Mrs Cannon for organising and directing the play as they have worked tirelessly and it wouldn’t have been possible without them.
