CHILDREN at Lanesend Primary School, Cowes, have recorded a festive themed song.

Twenty-three members of the school’s Glee Club recorded Back on the Island for Christmas at Flyte Studios, Rookley.

It was written by the deputy headteacher, Dave Cooper, who said: "We had been thinking about doing a Christmas song about the Isle of Wight so I wrote some chords and words and took it into the Glee Club.

"It sounds like a traditional Christmas carol. They came up with lovely harmonies and then went down to Flyte Studios, who were so impressed they shot a free video for us.

He added: "I have played some music and been in bands when I was younger."

A video of the entire school singing the song is also on YouTube.

CDs of the song is for sale at the school and it can also be downloaded from iTunes.
