Today is the first day back at school for many of you and we want to know how it's going?

All primary school pupils from England, and many from Northern Ireland, have returned to the classroom today after two months of homeschooling.

They will be joining lots of kids in Scotland and Wales, who started making their return in February.

Secondary schools in England are opening this week too but many pupils are returning in phases to make sure schools have time to set up coronavirus testing.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the return is an important first step towards a "sense of normality".

Schools re-opening is the first stage of England's lifting of lockdown.
