Pupils were welcomed back to school in Cricklewood with a live music street party.
Staff and pupils danced into Mora Primary School this morning as all schools in the UK returned to in-person teaching during the third national lockdown.
They were treated to a playlist of five songs, including Walking on Sunshine, Happy, Don't Worry Be Happy, You Are My Sunshine "for the little ones" and Proud Mary.
Kate Bass, headteacher of the school in Mora Road said neighbours were leafleted about the event beforehand to involve the whole community.
"It was fun and really nice. We were worried initially we wouldn't be able to keep people socially distanced but they were fine.

"It was all worth it; kids needed something to come back to and they all deserved it. Kids asked: 'Are we going to do this every day?'"
Pupils were coming back to Science Week at school with "lots of practical hands on learning," Ms Bass added.
