THE much-loved characters of Toad, Badger, Ratty and Mole have taken over at Sparsholt C of E Primary School.

To celebrate the end of a successful year, Year 6 (Oak Class) led an enchanting summer outdoor production of the classic The Wind in the Willows.

The school field was magically transformed into the Wild Wood, the Riverbank and Mole End, brought to life with a vintage rowing boat, a bright canary yellow caravan and the highlight of the show, a 1934 Aston Martin.

Every pupil in the highly creative production took part with Willow Class as ducks, Beech class performed a wonderful frog chorus dance and Rowan Class as Wild Wooders and Stoats.

Maple Class performed a remarkable dance as a car, inspired by the song Driving in My Car by Madness.

The stage was brimming over with talented singers, dancers and actors. Our outdoor production was certainly lots of fun this year!

Deputy headteacher Jane Gwilliam said: “I can’t think of a better way to spend some time on the riverbank, messing about in boats.”
