Jumanji Parade

Over 700 children, staff and parents gathered at Chorlton Park today to conclude the school's creative week based on Jumanji.  Thoughout the week children worked with artists Amy Horwell and Nerissa Cargill-Thomson to create a giant rhino, large snakes and a golden city to bring this exciting story to life.  

As the sun shone on South Manchester, the children filed into Chorlton Park wearing rhino masks, lion manes and carrying colourful banners.  The sound of the school's African drumming group accompanied the parade as children gathered in the playground to perform their jungle-themed songs and dances.  

At the end of the parade as the whole school community joined in to sing an emotional rendition of Bruno Mars' Count on Me, and children released 22 pink balloons.
