A group of primary school teachers have gone viral after creating a music video to encourage pupils to pick up a book and read.

It has been created as part of a new initiative to promote reading in the school - which involves teachers sharing videos of them reading stories on a regular basis for children to enjoy at home.

The primary school is one of seven schools in The Stour Academy Trust.

Other schools including Chilmington Green Primary School, Sturry C.E. Primary School and Hersden Village Primary School will also be sharing videos of their teachers reading stories on social media.
