Your first day at school on Wearside? You cried, sang and even thought your parents were leaving you!

We asked and you answered – in funny and emotional style.

We wanted your memories of your first ever day at school and it’s a day which clearly stays in the memory of many Wearside people.

Some of you ran home, some cried, and some ran off with a wave to mum.

Today, we have compiled some of the cutest, saddest and happiest memories of first days at school among the 7,000-strong following of our Wearside Echoes page.

You will find the page on Facebook and it’s a fun look at Sunderland and County Durham nostalgia.

In the meantime, desks please as we head back to the classroom.
