YOUNG pupils at an Easter Ross primary missing being at school during the coronavirus lockdown are still enjoying seeing a familiar face reading them a bedtime story.

Pupils across Ross-shire have been learning from home for several weeks now using online resources.

With many younger pupils missing seeing not only their school friends but also their teachers, one Invergordon head has come up with a novel way of keeping in touch.

David Hayes-MacLeod of the town's South Lodge Primary has started reading "bedtime" stories along the lines of those popularised by children's TV favourite, CBeebies.

Mr Hayes-MacLeod said his story times, recorded and posted on the school's Facebook page, are a way to retain contact with his young charges.

He said: "It is just a chance for me to keep in contact with them and for them to see me. This week, as it is mental health week, my story is to do with kindness and I chose a good old Katie Morag story to get the point across. Now I am no Tom Hardy, but the children seem to enjoy it!"
