Good Morning Year Five, 

I hope you had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend. 

Today, is the 39th anniversary of the first time a musical called Cats was performed. It is based around the poems of a man named T.S Elliot, and is set around different cat characters that the poet used own and have. 

The musical was very popular, and has gone on to be performed around the world. There was recently a film of the musical released (although many had complaints about the special effects).

Below I have included a little video of the stage version and the trailer for the film version. I wonder which one you would prefer to see!
