Becki Richardson, Key Stage 2 Leader and Year 5/6 class teacher, made the video with the help of staff at the school, who sent videos of themselves dancing and singing - and swimming - at home while on lockdown during the coronavirus outbreak.

Becki can be seen in the video singing and wearing a pink, sparkly hat, with other school staff taking the opportunity to make everyone smile.

The school said: "The staff at Caton St. Paul’s C.E. Primary School are committed to providing exciting, stimulating, learning experiences for all of our children in our St. Paul’s family.

"We are dedicated to enhancing our children’s positive mental health and well being and at this very difficult time the staff wanted to remind children, parents and the local community how incredibly missed and loved they are.

"Our children love their Friday morning wake up and shake up sessions with Mrs Becki Richardson and Miss Naomi Heap so they thought it was a brilliant opportunity to get all the staff to remind our children that moving and grooving creates happiness and smiles. After all, we are one family belonging, believing and learning together."
