Whether you spent summer on a yacht in the South of France with
your famous family or at Butlins with Mum and Dad, it’s D-day
for kids across the country.

And celebrity parents have been documenting their little ones
returning to school on Instagram with singer Elton John leading
the way by sharing an adorable snap of his sons Zachary, six,
and Elijah, four. 

The star said that seeing them in their matching uniform ‘warms
my heart’ as he sent them on their way. 

Colleen Rooney also put her marriage woes to one side to
celebrate her eldest son Kai, seven, saying she was bursting
with pride. 

Kai starts at the £12,000-a-year Manchester Grammar School
today, and his mother took a photograph of him at home in his
new blazer, tweeting: ‘#Daretobewise’ – in reference to the
school’s motto.
