With classmates separated during the lockdown, it is hard to keep the sense of school community.
Astley Primary School pupils have captured the mood of their community by attaching rainbows and messages to the railings of their school.
Across the world, rainbows have become the symbol of hope for children in these uncertain times.
Headteacher of the Briston school, Jen Goakes, said: “The rainbows mean so many things. To us at Astley, it represents a sense of togetherness, love, hope and a way to show everyone we are still here.
“Children adding their rainbows and seeing their friends’ rainbows keeps this love alive.”

The school remains open, including during the Easter holiday to support those key workers’ children, providing lessons, communication and support.
