A TOTTINGTON teacher has gone viral again after sharing a heartfelt video message saying goodbye to his pupils who he won't meet again due to the coronavirus outbreak.

During lockdown Simon Hunt's classroom at Tottington Primary School has sadly been empty of the usual laughter and learning of his Year 3 and 4 classes.

It has also meant that he has unable to say goodbye to his pupils as they will be in a different year group when they return to school.

This week Mr Hunt shared an incredible video in which he holds up a series of messages sharing how the school has not been the same without them.

In the video he tells the youngsters that they have all been his heroes during lockdown and that he misses them.

Mr Hunt told the Bury Times: "We won't get that time together to say goodbye to each other. That has been taken away.

"So I just wanted to say thank you because they really helped me through this and hopefully I helped them too."

So far the video has had more than 200,000 views online and has been shared across social media.

Mr Hunt said the video had received "really nice" feedback from parents and added that he wanted to highlight the amazing work of teachers during the lockdown.

"Every teacher in every school is different and every teacher is doing their best," he said.

This is not the first time Mr Hunt has hit the headlines for making viral videos with his pupils.

Last year a video of him teaching youngsters to dance 'The Floss' had millions of hits online.

And earlier this year he and colleagues became internet sensations when they made a 'Joe Wicks-inspired' fitness and PE lesson video.
