Big smiles as little ones settle into big school

Last week marked a big step for hundreds of little ones and their families across Wilmslow and Alderley Edge as they embarked on a new adventure with their first day at primary school.

As the new term began they set off in their new uniforms with shiny shoes and big smiles to meet their new teachers and makes lots of new friends.

Mrs Janet Hughes, Principal at Wilmslow Academy said "We are delighted to welcome our new Reception children to The Wilmslow Academy. We do still have a few free spaces in the year group so if you are looking for an excellent and exciting education for your children, our new Principal would love to show you around our wonderful school."

Miss Pengelly, reception teacher at Lindow Primary, said "I am really impressed with how well the children have settled into school this week and are already learning the class routines.

"Our reception children each have a Year 6 'buddy' to look after them at playtime and lunchtime.

"Every buddy has been incredibly helpful ensuring the children can open their snacks, fasten their coats and they play games together!"

Miss Hall & Miss Rowark, reception teachers at Lacey Green Primary said "Our new reception intake have had a fantastic first week at Lacey Green. The children came in with big smiles, super attitudes and a spring in their step which was lovely to see!

"We filled the week with getting to know each other, exploring the playground and joining in with activties with new friends. We can't wait for the year ahead."

Headteacher Jane Gornell said "Welcome to St Benedict's Catholic Primary School new reception class who started school with enthusiasm and joy last week. Miss Gordon, Mrs Everett and Miss Bolton are delighted to be working with such happy and well behaved pupils."

Claire Daniel, headteacher at St Annes Fulshaw said "All 16 of our Reception children settled really well and are enjoying school life very much."
