Year Six pupils at the Abbey Academy in Daventry will have plenty of fun when they stage their version of the classic tale of Jonah and the Whale for parents and friends later today (Tuesday).

They will perform two shows today for parents and friends. Their dress rehearsal on Monday was watched by their fellow pupils and staff.

Teacher Mrs Bailey said: “We’ve been doing ‘under the sea’ as a topic, and being a Church of England School this was just perfect for them to perform.”

Pictured are just some of the cast. From left is Jessie Edmonds as Peg It, Leo Jenkins as Leg It, Oliver Edginton as the Captain, Joshua Chapman as Rab the Crab, Mia Heron as Senorita, Thomas Nixon as God, and Samuel Windsor as Jonah.
