Dickelburgh Primary Academy, Horsford Church of England VA Primary, Sandringham & West Newton Primary, and Ditchingham & Gillingham Primary Academy all recorded the song ‘Looking to the Rainbow’.

Both key worker children still attending school and their classmates at home performed the song that was written to share hope during coronavirus closures. The results were shared on YouTube to coincide with Thank a Teacher Day on May 20.

Moira Croskell, headteacher of Dickleburgh Primary Academy, said: “Sharing this with our parents and children this week has made us feel like a school family coming together again after so long apart.”

Paul Dunning, director of education for the Diocese of Norwich said: “I’m delighted to see our schools using this song of hope with their own communities as part of the Faith at Home campaign.”
