TWO schools have been putting together videos to keep staff and pupils' up during the coronavirus lockdown.

Upton Upon Severn class 5 teacher Emma Malpass helped her colleagues create a video of Tony Christie's famous 'Amarillo', made popular by Peter Kay.

She said: "In class 5 at Upton upon Severn, ‘If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you’ is often shared.

"However, since the Covid-19 outbreak, there have been challenges that have that have really changed us.

"The Upton team wanted to create something with for the school community to show that we were thinking of everyone, even if we can’t be with them.

"Creating the video, using Tony Christie’s song -Is this the way to Amarillo? seemed the perfect way of letting the school community know we can still work as part of a team with the constraints of social distancing. Proving once again, if it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you."

Headteacher Julie Willis said: "We have been working hard at Upton upon Severn Cof E Primary and pre-school to ensure we remain a positive support for our families and the children.

"We have a strong team ethos which is rooted throughout all we do at school. We have run over the last few years a growth mind-set project and this is what Emma has written about why she did the video."

The school has been showing its support already during the coronavirus lockdown, with a fantastic rainbow display praising NHS staff painted in April.

Another school, St Matthias in Malvern, has created a similar video, this time to thank NHS staff working in the county.

In this video, pupils hold up their message of support and thanks for all the work of the NHS and key workers keeping the country going.

Some are holding up signs while others have created displays to show their support.
