DS is starting reception in 2 weeks. We have the uniform and the school bag, which we were told we had to have.
That's fine but we were not told what he needs to take in his school bag on the first day/week?!
any help?
thanks!

Water bottle, fruit snack pot (if he is unlikely to like the school fruit snack) and a packet of tissues?

The bag is mainly so a book/phonics can be sent home.

Depends if they provide pencils, etc. My ds takes a plastic folder to put jotters in and a pencil case with pencils, rubber, ruler, etc.

Bottle of water

Nothing - take the empty book bag on the first day.

thanks
the bag they made us buy is one of those flat ones - I don't think a bottle of water and snack would fit in there?

If you haven't been told anything else i would send it empty. At my sons school water bottles aren't needed for reception, y1 and y2 as jugs/cups of water are provided. the bag is mostly to send him reading books/homework/artwork etc.

Sounds like a bookbag then. My two never had them and used a backpack instead. I'd just leave it empty then

dementedpixie yes it is a bookbag, sorry!

Leave it empty.

It will come home with
- reading record
- reading books
- newsletters
- invitations

Avoid backpacks and if they haven't asked for water bottles please don't send one!
