Family members were delighted to be given an insight into the work carried out by Keiss P1/2/3 pupils during a school assembly.

Head teacher Fraser Thomson described it as a memorable event and said there was a welcome sense of normality returning after more than two years.

Led by class teacher Olivia Bremner, the P1/2/3 youngsters gave a tour of their learning over the term. Family members were shown examples of the pupils’ work in literacy and numeracy.

The class members also shared their new knowledge about the human body and gave a rendition of Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes in French. Families and staff then joined in.

Afterwards, guests stayed for tea, coffee and cake provided by school cook Pamela Jack.

Guests were also able to see the developments in the new Polycrub at the school. Family members have been donating seeds to grow and local builder Paul Sutherland supplied earth for planting beds.

All classes and the nursery are growing a variety of vegetables such as sweetcorn, runner beans, potatoes and carrots.

Head teacher Fraser Thomson said: “This was an opportunity to further appreciate a sense of normality returning to our school and nursery communities.

"This assembly will live long in the memory of everyone who attended. The pupils’ enthusiasm and confidence in presenting was nothing short of brilliant and they are a credit to their families.

"It was great to catch up with parents over a cup of tea and cake.

Grandparent Graham Mackay said: “We’ve heard so much about what goes on in school. To finally come in and put names to faces and see how much fun and hard work the boys and girls put into their work was clear to see – a great morning.”

Staff and pupils were able to spent time with parents over tea and cake.
