Back to School

It's Back to School time again! Perhaps you are a teacher looking for ideas to help you get the classroom ready and welcome your new students back to school? Or perhaps you are a parent or childminder looking for ways to get the kids geared up for a new school year. Either way you will find all sorts of ideas here and in our main School section too...

A Note for Parents:
The new school year is always an exciting time but it can also be scary and intimidating for a young child. You can make a real difference to how your children feel about it and how quickly they settle in, by introducing some of our school themed activities (from these Back to School pages and also our main School section) in the days running up to the beginning of term, talking about what to expect, involving them in buying supplies and sorting through what they will need, and adapting your routines, bed-times and meal times so that they will be ready for the first day at school.
