Hello September – the new school year is officially upon us! It’s an exciting time for both parents and their children. In some cases, it may be the start of a new school and adjusting to new routines, or just simply returning to normality after several weeks at home.
However, preparing for a new school year can also be overwhelming, and with so much going on, it can be difficult to keep on top of everything! To make life a little easier for you, we’ve created a quick guide to help get your little ones into back-to-school mode and start preparations for the new school year.
Class is in session!
1 – Bedtime routine
If your little one’s sleep routine is out of sync since the summer holidays, the first weeks of school can often be challenging! It’s key to establish a bedtime routine as early as possible to give your children more time to adjust. Rewarding your child with things like trips to the park or meals out for the early wake-ups also goes a long way in establishing a good sleep routine.
2 – Uniform… Check!
If you haven’t already bought your kid’s uniforms for the new school year, it’s not too late. You can still find plain shirts, t-shirts, trousers and skirts in places like Primark for an affordable price. But, it’s important to make sure their uniform fits, everything is labelled – to avoid those P.E. changing room mishaps – and check their school shoes are comfy. A great place to purchase your children’s school shoes is JD at Lion Walk, with their products coming in all shapes and sizes.
3 – “Muuuum! I can’t find my pencils!”
A new school year also means new school supplies luckily. Let your child choose their new pens, markers, notebooks and other stationary items. Get creative with your child and personalise those supplies – help them turn a plain notebook or binder into their own personal work of art! If you’re on the hunt for supplies, WHSmith has a wide range of school stationery supplies including notepads, exercise books, pens, pencils, planners, lunchboxes and much more!
Hopefully, you’ve found some relief in the guide. Especially now that you know you can visit Lion Walk Shopping Centre to get all your back to school supplies.
