Parents! Here's Your Child’s Back to School Checklist
We’ve put together a handy checklist of all the things you’re likely to need to help your child get ready to go back to school…
We hope these tips will help you out!
We remember we used to get so excited to go shopping to get a new school uniform! Shirts or polo shirts, trousers, skirts, dresses, a jumper or blazer and shoes are all on the school uniform list.
Tip! Don't forget name labels are super handy, in case any of your child’s uniform goes missing at school.
Whether it’s cool animal shaped rubbers or a pen with a pompom on the end, a trendy new pencil case with lots of awesome goodies in is a staple!
For all of those active PE sports, you might need a drawstring bag, plimsolls, shorts and a t-shirt for these lessons. You may want to think about a swimming kit, in case there’s any school trips to the local swimming baths.
Whether they’ve a diary, books or worksheets to take home, a bag is important to keep things together. If your child’s school doesn’t have book bags, you might want to consider a backpack.
If your child will be taking in their own lunch, don’t forget a lunchbox to hold their favourite snacks; the more colourful, the better we say!
Lastly, enjoy every minute of it with your child! We know it can be slightly daunting being in a new class with lots of new children, but once your child’s introduced to everyone, it can calm nerves and help them settle in much better.
We hope your child has a great start to the academic year!
