editorial image

Pupils from across the district have been settling into their new schools.

The four and five-year-olds are shown here proudly showing off their new uniforms.

The children have been spending their first few weeks making new friends, taking their first steps into learning and having fun in the playground.

The Express is asking schools to send in their own pictures of their new reception classes.

They will be featured in print over the next few weeks, then in an online slideshow once they have all been sent in.

If you would like to take part, email a class picture to Please include the class and teacher’s name and the name of the school. The image must be in JPEG format.
