Parents up and down the UK are attempting to home school their youngsters amid the coronavirus crisis.
Apart from those considered to be the offspring of ‘essential workers’ wee ones are being taught in makeshifts classrooms across the country, after the UK Government closed schools and issued a lockdown.
Celebrities, teachers and helpful social media users have been sharing resources, ideas and words of support to each other over the past couple of days to help parents get to grips with the mammoth task of teaching their children.
And one Wakefield dad has shared his own inspirational work and achievements so far, after leading an unusual music lesson for his two kids.
Robbo Robson, a self-confessed music lover, shared this hilarious video of his kids Harry and Lexi, when he introduced them to a classic Queen song and dance routine that will be sure to help them in the future.
We assume, after teaching the pair the words to 1984 anthem I Want To Break Free as part of his lesson, the dad then moved on to unveil to them the iconic video which went alongside the hit, which would be the focus of their coursework for the day.
He filmed his kids paying tribute to band members Freddie Mercury and Brian May’s performances, which were inspired by Coronation Street, and the results were so show-stopping even the legendary rockers would be impressed.
Robbo shared the two-minute clip on Twitter and captioned it: “Daddy Day Care – Music lesson – Video cut short unfortunately. Teaching the kids about the greats starting with Queen.”
In the footage, Harry can be seen given a very dramatic performance as he took on rock legend Mercury’s famous role.
But don’t forget to check out rising star Lexi giving it her all in the background, because we’re still in tears.
Outstanding work by both, gold stars all round.
The video for I Want To Break Free parodied the Manchester soap with Mercury’s bored-housewife character inspired by none other than Bet Lynch, and caused controversy when it was released in 1984 because all of the band members appeared in drag.
The song reached number three in the UK and topped the charts across the world.
We cannot wait to see which rock icons Robbo’s School of Rock will be teaching next…
