Risby Primary School teachers record special video of 'The Day the Crayons Came Home' for pupils




Teachers at Risby CEVC Primary School have been injecting a bit of colour into pupils’ lives during lockdown.

The group of 10 teachers filmed a special performance of the award-winning children’s story The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt – the sequel to the book their classes had been studying on World Book Day in March.

The video, which has almost 800 views, sees all the teachers dress as different coloured crayons, with headteacher Soo Miller playing the part of narrator.

“We wanted to do something special to let the children know we’re thinking of them,” said Mrs Miller. “We really wanted to share something special and my special moments are when we come together as a Risby family. We sit in the hall and we share a story.”

Each teacher filmed their own scene at home and the videos were then sent to Andrew Marwood, director of arts, who put them together.
