A group of youngsters donned their best animal costumes last month to take a classic tale and make it their own.

Key stage 2 children from Winhills Primary School, in Duck Lane, St Neots, took to the stage at the end of term to perform Wind in the Willows.

The pupils, in years four, five and six, performed the production in front of friends, family and school staff.

To get ready for the summer show the children were tasked with learning a number of dances and songs with many practicing around their houses after enjoy it so much.

For some of the children it was also the last show that they will perform at Winhills before moving onto secondary school.

First published in 1908, by Kenneth Grahame, the play tells the story of four anthropomorphised animals in England.
