Children at Ark Ayrton Primary Academy are raising money for Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a charity which helps children who have lost a parent serving in the armed forces.

The school has released a video of the song.

Introducing it, one of the pupils says: ‘This week we have been learning about the importance of remembrance. As a school, remembrance is significant to us because we believe it is vital to remember, and show our respect to the soldiers who fought courageously for our country.’
