AT the end of term, the children in Key Stage 2 at St Michael's C E Primary School in Bodenham put on two stunning performances of their end of year production entitled Pirates versus Mermaids.

The pirates and the mermaids really don't get along - in fact, they hate each other!

This production had everything - Captain Scarypants and his terrifying torrent of pirates, a famished crocodile, a gossip of gutsy mermaids and a bonkers parrot.

The children worked incredibly hard learning lines and painting scenery, wowing the audience on both evenings with their sheer professionalism.
