As the Covid-19 restrictions remain in place, staff from Amesbury C of E Primary have put together a video to lift spirits.

The school's Deputy Headteacher Sophie Short had the idea to create a video based on the story 'The Invisible String' by Patrice Karst.

The video shows staff and children pulling on a single thread that runs through the whole school community.

Here's the video in full: 

The story was read to the children before Amesbury C of E closed to most pupils due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Everyone who took part in the video sent in their clips from home or school, depending on where they're working at the moment.

The video's been really popular with the children and families from the school community, 

It's had more than 800 views with just a couple of days, with the Primary saying it's 'really lovely' to bring people together.


Amesbury C of E is still looking after the children of key workers during the coronavirus lockdown, including some children who go to other schools that have been closed for the time being. 

They've had 65 children coming into school since 23rd March.

Over the first four weeks, they've also been able to provide more than 350 cooked meals for local vulnerable families.
