Back to School

Whether it feels like they’ve been off for months, or like only yesterday when the kids broke up from school, we have already started planning what they need when they go back! New school uniform, a bigger rucksack, new pens and pencil, art equipment, maths books, and not forgetting a sports kit!

Thankfully at The Meadows we have just what you need to stock up on all the back to school essentials.

First on the list is a new school bag. If you’ve noticed last years’ is looking a little worse for wear, Sports Direct have a huge selection of bags from top sporting brands, to Frozen and Star Wars themed; some big enough to fit in everything but the kitchen sink, and others just the right size for the necessities.

Next stop is stationery and making sure the kids are stocked up with all their pens and pencils! If treating them to a trip to find a trendy new pencil case will be the perfect solution for a rainy day (let’s hope there aren’t many more!), check out Wilko’s fantastic range of funky and bright coloured stationery, with the ‘Unearthed’ and ‘Enterprising Britain’ ranges. Note taking will be even more fun on these stylish notepads, and you can be sure your little students won’t get desk envy with this mini stationery kit filled with desk accessories including a stapler, sticky tape and paper clips.

Head to Sports Direct next to get them kitted out for games and PE. Whether its football practice, running or swimming club, the store has everything from drinks bottles and socks to waterproof jackets and tennis rackets.
Now when the first day of school comes round yet again, you can wave them off with a tear in your eye (or a spring in your step!), knowing they’re prepared and ready to start the new school year!
