    The clip starts with headteacher Paul Howieson surprising the children by reading out the first verse from “Let It Go”, the standout track from Disney’s Frozen.

    The rest of the school's teachers then join him in belting out Idina Menzel's popular* tune.

    (*popular = it won an Oscar and the official video has been watched almost 390 million times on YouTube.)

    Reverend Michael Camp even joined in, the Bournemouth Echo reported.

    Howieson told the local newspaper: "We have been working on the performance for the last three weeks and did two or three rehearsals in the church and several at school.

    "We had to close the curtains and pretend nothing was going on but it worked. I don't think anybody had any idea what we were up to."

    The headteacher said the children started to "stir" by the third word of his reading and when he got to line about looking like a queen they began laughing.

    "I think it's good for them to see their teachers in a different way, and see we like a laugh as much as anyone," he added.

    "And it was great to get Reverend Michael involved too. It's a really positive association with the church for the kids."

    Howieson said the teachers now faced the problem of doing something even bigger and better next year as well as trying to keep it a secret.
