Back To School Bargains!

With the nights already drawing in and the weather growing unpredictable, it seems that the best of the summer has been and gone. As any parent will undoubtedly tell you, this also means that children across the country will soon be returning to classroom captivity, and therefore now is the perfect time to stock up on everything they need to make it through the coming term in one piece. Check out our top picks for back to school below!

It might not be time to roll out the winter wear just yet, but with sudden rainstorms and dropping temperatures on the horizon, there’s no sense in waiting to make sure that they’ll be kept safe and warm when autumn finally descends. With a soft polyester build and a choice of five colours, this Fruit Of The Loom Fleece Jacket is great for both boys and girls looking to layer up during colder weather, and those seeking a lightweight way of keeping rain at bay should look no further than this waterproof Result Core Stormdri Jacket.

Kids socks go through a lot at the best of times, and with countless hours of wear and tear to contend with, childrens school socks have to be ready for anything. With a cotton rich build and a selection of four colours, these Childrens Plain School Socks are the perfect choice for keeping feet snug and warm, and at £1.95 for three pairs, they’re painless to replace when kids inevitably grow out of them! For girls, these White Knee High Socks are also perfect for adding a cute touch to an otherwise drab school ensemble.

A sturdy backpack goes a long way to keeping your little ones’ possessions safe and sound, and this SOLS Kids Rider School Rucksack is perfect for keeping everything from books to pencil-cases in tip top condition. With two spacious zipped compartments and padded, reinforced shoulder straps for additional comfort and support, it’s the ideal way to transport their essentials to and from the classroom.

A smart, clean school shirt is the best way to start a new school term, and made from durable cotton blend fabric, this Childrens Long Sleeved Shirt is a smart and comfortable choice for the months ahead. For those seeking a more casual design, this SG Childrens Just Cool Polo Shirt is perfect, and with built in moisture wicking technology, it’s also a great choice for P.E. lessons.

Keep Your Kids Happy This Easter Half Term

As any child between the age of five and fifteen will tell you, the half-term break is fast approaching. Yes, you may have only just recovered from Christmas, but next week they’ll spill out of the school-gates and be ready to run wild once again. Here are our top buys to ensure your little ones make the most of their time off.

Although a seaside paddle may still be a few months off, a day out at the local pool is sure to entertain your brood (and hopefully wear them out nicely too!). With an elasticated, drawstring waist and in a choice of three colours, these Cargo Bay Boys Hawaiian Print Swimming Shorts are perfect for young swimmers looking to take to the water, and this vibrant Heart Prink Halterneck Swimming Costume is ideal for girls who want to stand out from the crowd.

Whilst spring may (finally) be rearing its head, there’s no guarantee that Mother Nature‘s going to give us an easy ride as we slide into summer. So, whilst you’re planning your next big adventure, slip these B&C Sirocco Lightweight Jackets into their backpacks. Designed with the K-Way system, they’re easy to fold into the small pouch attached to the jacket, making it the perfect answer to an unexpected rain shower. Trust us, you’ll thank us later.

Whatever your kids are passionate about, half-term is the perfect time to indulge their interests. If you’ve got a budding baker in the family, brighten up the kitchen (and protect their clothes!) with the Premier Kids Bib Apron. For the sportier youngster, these Lotto Spider Football Boots are sure to go down a treat, with a Velcro fastener and six removable studs making them ideal for the pitch. If your little ones are more interested in ballet than the ball, these Full Foot Silky Dance Tights will ensure they’re ready to take to the stage.

If the idea of entertaining your kids for a whole two weeks has already got you biting your nails then there’s no sense in waiting until half-term winds down to buy your back-to-school supplies. With a stylish black finish and Velcro straps for security, these Mirak school shoes are perfect for their return to the playground, and in both boys and girls styles there’s something for everyone. P.E. supplies are also sorted thanks to this kids Unisex Sport Polo Shirt and these Shadow Stripe Sports Shorts, and this smart Quadra Kids Backpack is perfect for keeping their belongings safe and sound during the hustle and bustle of the school run.
