    I'm worried about sleep to, my dd1 has never been an amazing sleeper. She goes to bed between 8/8:30, unless she's really tired then she usually falls asleep at 7 (very rare).

    My kids goto bed 7pm up at 6:30 they do have a 'rest' not sleep at chidcare if home they will sleep for 1.5 hrs.

    On weekends they sleep in until 7:30-8 I think u will find she will be ok might take a while etc catch up and if she does extra curricular EG swimming etc maybe postipine for first term

    DD (5.5yo) goes to bed at 7/7:30 and is up between 5:30-6:30am. I think that's enough sleep for her. She's very routine-driven and will often ask to go to bed if it's past 7pm and we haven't told her it's bedtime. I expect she'll be exhausted for the first few weeks of school regardless!

    I bought a Batman Backpack from KMART, I did buy the larger size because they need to fit spare clothes, lunch box (these can be big!) and sometimes a jacket/puffy vest at the end of the day (well, I can carry this out but sometimes its easier to stuff it in the bag!)
    Don't worry if the bag is too big for the, usually parents carry the bags in and then they can put away on hooks or pigeon holes for the rest of the day.

    DD met her likely teacher on Tuesday. I didn't get a good vibe from her! She seemed like she will be a bit or a strict / harsh teacher.

    Am I being too quick to judge?

    While I always listen to my gut instinct. My dd's grade 1 teacher this year had a terrible reputation. Every single person I met last year never had a nice thing to say about her.

    Fast forward to the end of grade one and the teacher has been fantastic, really understands the kids and dd loves her, out of my group of school mum friends we all think she's great. All we had to do was get to know her.

    So definetly keep an open mind, she may just take a little bit to get to know and open up

    That's really good advice, thank you.

    DS is going to use the same Star Wars one he's used for preschool this year - I would call it a standard size backpack (not too huge for a 5 year old to wear comfortably).

    I like that it has two separate large sections, a zip up pouch on the side as well as a drink bottle holder.

    Last year he had a smaller child-size backpack with just one big compartment and I think that would be too small for big school.
