Get back-to-school ready

It's that time already - time to start thinking about back-to-school buys to get your little one ready for the new school year! Don't worry, we've got all the inspiration you need

Back to school shopping inspiration Lewisham

1. Marks and Spencer always pull it out the bag when it comes to school uniform, and these simple but tailored boys' school shorts are no exception and brilliant for the transition season. Marks and Spencer, £12

2. This Circle Collective Sprayground backpack is a great buy for the cool teenager! Circle Collective, £75

3. Well, at least these revision cards from Wilko look lovely, to add a little bit of positivity into their studying. Wilko, £1.50

4. Remember how exciting it was to get new stationery when you were little (who are we kidding, it still is!)? This spy pen from Smiggle is part pen and part invisible marker, only revealed by the magic light of the spy torch! It's perfect for those secret codes and to keep the kids entertained. Smiggle, £4

5. A new pencil case is also a must, especially to store all those new pens in! WHSmith, £5.99

6. It's important to make sure your little one is always hydrated, so get them a suitable water bottle that they can take into school and refill. The hype branding on this one is cool, so could be a good option for the older child. Next, £6

7. Shopping for new school shoes can be super exciting for children, and nowadays they have all sorts of lovely designs out there to choose from. These shoes from Clarks are perfect for older kids. Clarks, £42

8. While it's still warm, it's nice to be able to still wear a dress and Marks and Spencer have some lovely summer gingham dresses in store. M&S, £12-£16
