Pupils served up panto fun to children at a school with their performance of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The five to 11-year-olds, from Swain House Primary School, Bradford, visited children at Frizinghall Primary School, in Salisbury Road.

Swain House support worker Karen Jones said the 20 actors in the show were part of the ARC (additionally resourced centre), a special provision based at the school in Radcliffe Avenue for deaf and hearing-impaired children.

She said: “Each year they perform a panto for the school, specially adapted by one of our very own teacher of the deaf, Miss Sarah Rothera. This year it is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It's a whole team effort to put on a production that celebrates the children’s use of signed and spoken language.

“The panto is always thoroughly enjoyed by the hearing children at Swain House and this year we have a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate the children's talents and their aptitude for drama to the children at Frizinghall Primary school who have been taking part in the national Sign 2 Sing project.”
