Get ready for going back to school this September

Get ready to go back to school this Septemer

As parents, we want to be well prepared, but the lists of what is needed can be endless! It can be difficult to know what the essentials are, so we have put together a list of what we feel are essentials for when your child is going back to school

Prepare the Uniform

Uniform essentials for children starting school usually include:

  • 2 polo shirts
  • 2 school shirts
  • 2 pairs of trousers / shorts / pinafores / skirts
  • 1 school cardigan / jumper
  • PE Kit (tracksuit, shorts & runners)
  • Schools shoes (usually black or brown)
  • School socks / tights

Get School Supplies

Look out for deals from school book suppliers and check out second-hand options.

Don’t forget about the following :

  • Pencils
  • Pens
  • Crayons
  • Notepads
  • Eraser
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Folder for notes

Create a Lunch Plan

If you want to avoid giving your child the same lunch every day, we recommend having a lunch box plan. Simply varying the fruits, veggies, sandwich holder and fillings can make life easier and prevent lunch boxes from coming home uneaten!

You could also set up a different shelf in the cupboards & fridge so your child can choose different items daily.

Put a Morning Routine in Place

When your child is starting school it is essential to put a morning routine in place as quickly as possible. If they stick to the order, they will soon learn the routine and mornings will be less stressful for everyone.

For instance you could have; wake up at your alarm, get dressed, eat breakfast, brush teeth, brush hair, get lunchbox ready, shoes on, coat on and ready to go!

We hope these pointers give you a good start on getting ready for the back-to-school rush! With technology playing a big part in your child’s learning and development, we also want to make sure you’re covered. Dynamo Cover offer insurance for your gadgets, including phones, laptops and much more! Get complete peace of mind for you and your child with worldwide, around-the-clock Gadget Cover today.
