THE start of a new school year has brought young, fresh and excited faces to the beginning of their education journeys.

To mark the occasion, primary school teachers have been busy sending the Journal pictures of their Reception newcomers, showing off the latest cohort of four and five-year-olds welcomed to the classroom.

The gallery above features just some of the new classes from in and around Salisbury.

The images also appeared in this week's paper, which is in shops from today, October 28.

We hope you enjoy this gallery as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

Only schools who submitted their photos to us in time have been included.

To order photos, please contact the schools directly.
