This week my children all returned to school for the new school year. They had everything they needed and I was left with a big hole in my bank balance. I was lucky to have some help along the way with some school essentials.
My children all have a waterproof jacket from Regatta. We only live five minute walks away from both the primary and secondary school. It’s a good thing as it means if it’s cold, they don’t have far too walk so they don’t really need to take big thick coats at the moment. Just something light to keep them dry.
Ryan, who now fits in small men’s sizes has a small mans Pack it jacket in black coating £30.
Jordanna has a similar type of jacket too, in that hers also folds away into a bag. Her Pack it Jacket arrived folded in the bag.
It is very similar to Ryan’s jacket but with a raindrop pattern instead and also costs £30.
The Brize rucksack is 20 litre and costs £16.95. It’s a bit smaller than what I expected but still holds all of Ryan’s bits. The Zephyr duck is a bright yellow novelty bag. Big enough for a big kid starting big school for the first time. This costs just £6.25 so a bit of a bargain find.
