Staff from the Lantern Community School in Ely decided to do just that by filming themselves getting into the groove to Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’.

Since the school posted a video on social media of staff keeping children entertained from dancing in their back garden to rowing on a trampoline on Wednesday (April 29), it has attracted over 6,000 views.

Residents reacted with fondness to the video on the school’s Facebook page, which has been inundated with positive words.

One said “well done Lantern! The kids are lucky to have you!”, while another wrote “thanks for cheering us up on a rubbish afternoon! You’re all marvellous”.
