Talented young poets from Wick have written poems about what life has been like for them in lockdown.
The works by pupils at Noss Primary have been collected together in a book entitled Home School.
It is being sold to raise money for Caithness Klics, a charity that supports young carers in the community.
Judith Crow, P4G class teacher, said: “I’m just overwhelmed by the fantastic response the children have had to their book.
“But it’s completely deserved, because each and every poem in it is something special.
“There is a bit of humour, a bit a frustration, a lot of missing our loved ones and looking forward to being together again.”
All money from the sale of the poems goes to Caithness Klics, which supports around 100 young carers in Caithness and offers weekly support sessions in Wick and Thurso.
Charity manager Wendy Thain said: “As we support young carers in Noss School we were delighted when Miss Crow contacted us regarding raising money for Klics by selling the lovely poems her class had written during lockdown.
“We intend to get our own special edition of the poems for our Klics centre in Wick as a memory and for all our young people to read while visiting the centre.”
The book is available online at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/homeschoolpoems while a number of hard copies will be available from Harrold’s butchers in Wick this week.

Happy to be with my family
Or able to play in my garden
Missing everyone so much
Everything is so hard some days
Seems so long since seen my family
Coronavirus makes me sad
Hope to play with my friends soon
Or maybe go to the farm
Outside with the farm animals
Like going on a walk with my family
