Pupils at Belgrave Primary School presented a version of Peter Pan with a modern twist at the end of the summer term.

The production, with references to growing up, Little Mix, Master Chef and One Direction, was performed by pupils at the Westminster Park school.

The innovative script was written by Year 6 teacher Alli Hancock who also directed along with Tim Clifton.

The story of what happened when Peter Pan taught Wendy, Michael and John how to fly was told by the stars with fairies Tinker and Bell interacting with the audience by sprinkling them with fairy dust.

Flashy the pirate declines the offer of Smee’s soup that smells of old socks even though he was a contestant on Pirate Master Chef and the girl pirates had false eyes, tattoos and plenty of muscle.

The Lost Boys in Neverland were named Niall, Zayn, Harry, Louis and Liam after the chart-topping boy band and Captain Hook was suitably mean, funny, and bossy.  Creative use of their environment meant that children flew by climbing the wall bars in the school hall, sails were attached to the PE apparatus and the sea was created from bubble machines.

The Year 5 children were suns and shadows dancing to Mr Blue Sky , Year 4’ children were the pirates and Year 3 pupils were the Tribe of the Five Ashes who drummed and chanted, lead by Great Big Little Panther and Tiger Lily.

Headteacher Deanne Garrett said: "Families described the show as our 'best ever', 'fabulous' and 'truly professional'.

"The school's aim is that everyone takes part when we put on a performance and we want to ensure that each child is a star."

The cohort of 2007 are the last cohort to have started at Belgrave when it was an infant school and the only Year 6 that has been taught as two classes all the way through the juniors.
