The Leader's First Days of School reception photos have returned for 2021 with the fourth in a series of galleries.

More than 150 photographs were published in our 24-page supplement, and we want to say thank you to everyone who has bought a copy as a memento of their child or grandchild’s first year at primary school.

This September saw thousands of the region's youngsters start primary school for the first time.

We take a look at the new starters in reception classes from across Wrexham and Flintshire, in the second of several photo galleries this week.

Here there are beaming smiles and bright school jumpers, as schools geared up for a new way of life in the classroom, in light of the pandemic.

If any schools would like to share photos or stories of their new starters' progress or achievements, or creative work in the run up to Christmas, do get in touch.
