PUPILS at Drake's Primary School in East Budleigh showed off their acting skills when they performed a William Shakespeare play.

Children from the school took part in a production The Tempest last Wednesday. Headteacher Carron Saunders said while it was mainly a show for the school's upper years, all pupils had a part to play.

As well as stage acting, the production featured digital projections being displayed.

Carron added: "The upper years have been studying The Tempest for a while. The standard of all-round acting was great.

"I really love these kinds of productions because it is nice to see teachers and children planning pieces of work that result in an end-product that is not written down but visual."

Carron said the productions were well attended by parents.
