VIDEO: Watch Coddington primary school pupils signing to Shotgun by George Ezra.

By Rachel Armitage

A popular pop song has been given a unique twist by a village school, and it's had over 14,000 views.

Coddington Primary School has a number of children who communicate using sign language, so the school has taught its pupils sign language so they can converse with their classmates regardless of ability.

During an end of term talent show, year one pupil James McGhie performed the number one hit song Shotgun by George Ezra in sign language, and the year three class decided to learn the song themselves.

Class teacher Mrs Maree Spout Clark took the lead and the children learned all of the motions in double-quick time, and on Monday a video was taken of the class performing Shotgun.

The video was shared on the school's Facebook and Twitter pages and has since gone viral, with over 14,000 views, and the school's staff and pupils are hoping that the superstar himself will recognise their hard work.

Executive headteacher Jon Brown said: "I'm very proud of the children for all their hard work, we're an inclusive school and it's very important to embrace that.

"Some of our children use sign language and we use it to sign along to hymns during collective worship.

"We hope George Ezra manages to see the video and likes that we've embraced his song."
