Watch Chester primary school pupils power through Deep Purple tribute

Year 5 and 6 children performed Smoke on the Water on Sport Relief day

Everyone knows the iconic guitar riff and it is guaranteed to get stuck in your head after watching this performance by a band of Chester primary school pupils.

Children at St Oswald's CE Primary School in Mollington have been paying a tribute to Deep Purple with their version of Smoke on the Water.

Year 5 and 6 classes joined together to perform for the school on Sport Relief day (Friday, March 18).

Headteacher Dave Wallace said: "We're having a fantastic day for Sport Relief.

"The children were loving getting to play Smoke on the Water. It's a bit before their time, but the song was chosen as a link to their current learning topic of water.

"I think the performance is of an extremely high standard and we are extremely proud of the children."

Mr Wallace added the children were all learning an instrument as part of their curriculum and some had only begun playing since September.

Events are taking place in schools across Cheshire West to raise money for Sport Relief which will go towards supporting the poorest communities in the UK and abroad.

St Oswald's pupils came in wearing sporting kits on Friday and also had activities such as skipping to look forward to.
