Transition into Reception 2020

Hello and Welcome to Berry Brow!


Here at Berry Brow we are VERY EXCITED to begin welcoming our new starters who will start in Bee's in September 2020. 


We won’t be able to say hello in person just yet, as we all need to carry on staying home and keeping safe right now. But just because we can’t do that yet, doesn’t mean we can’t start having some fun together and get to know each other!


We are putting on our thinking caps to think of some ideas that we can possibly share with you and ways we can get connected before you begin with us. For now if you want to see what Bee's will be like ... have a look at our current Bees Page (click here) to see what we have done this year ... if you scroll down you will see things we did when we were in school. 

Watch this space for more exciting information!
