IN SEPTEMBER, youngsters all over Basingstoke started school for the first time.

Every year, the Gazette captures photos of boys and girls in their new classes to mark the milestone.

As the reception classes of 2020 near the end of term, we're excited to be running the second instalment of our First Class picture special for parents, grandparents and other family members to treasure.

This school year’s picture special appears inside the Gazette TODAY, Thursday, December 3.
