Ashley Wilson, aka A Mother's Edit, shares her tips for getting the kids ready for a new term.
I loved reading books about the change, making the alien more normal so they become familiar with school life.
If you know any other children that are making the same transition, spend time with them over the holidays so you can chat about it all together and they don’t feel as alone.
Try and keep it as exciting as possible, choosing the uniform, bags, lunch boxes, water bottles.
And try not to call it big school – it can be intimidating enough without the word ‘big’ being put in front of it.
