A lip-sync video made by children, parents and staff of Easton Royal School has already gathered nearly 8000 views from all over the world after it was shared on the school’s Facebook page last evening, Tuesday April 21.
The video was the idea of Headteacher, Beck Barber-Stubbs who wears a blue coat and plays a marble-run trumpet in the video! Introducing the video the school’s Facebook page states, “We are still one big community working together, even though we are in separate houses.”
Beck Barber-Stubbs sent the track of Jackie Wilson’s, ‘Your love is lifting me higher’ to families and staff giving them each a line to lip sync. The video was created over the Easter holidays. It features staff, children (including older and younger siblings) and parents.
It had its world premiere on the school’s Facebook page yesterday after the daily bedtime story at 6.30pm. As well as nearly 8000 views, it has collected nearly 70 appreciative comments and over 50 shares.
Easton Royal staff entered into the spirit of the video by playing unusual and creative instruments as well as more traditional ones. There was Mrs Wootton on the watering can and Mrs McKay on rhubarb, as well as Miss Phillips on drum-kit, Mrs O’Shaughnessy on saxophone, Mrs Batten on bongos, Miss Southwell on bass, Mrs Naylor-Allison on guitar and Mrs Turner on tambourine!
Ellen Barber, a friend of the school commented, “The video has had such an impact. It teaches resilience and working together in the face of difficult times. There have already been requests for another!”
