WE’VE been receiving your amazing pictures as schools welcomed back pupils last week.

Many schools across the Yate, Chipping Sodbury, Frampton and Winterbourne areas have reopened.

For some pupils, it is the first time they have returned to the classroom since March, although there are different starting dates, with some schools having training days for staff to prepare for new safety measures in the classroom.

We would like to wish all children returning to school or starting for the first time in reception, junior school or senior school, lots of luck in the first few weeks.

Many proud parents have shed a tear this week and taken those first glorious photo memories.

If you have any nice pictures do send them to us as a private Facebook message with names, ages, and schools and we can add them to this gallery.
