Hi there! So, school starts soon. Or it already started for you. If that’s the case, then I’m sorry for being late
Anyywayy, today I am going to be telling you what’s in my backpack and pencil case, because that’s what everyone wants to know, right?
The reasons I’m not going to be showing what’s in my backpack and pencil case are because 1) I haven’t actually packed yet, but every year I pack the same things so this is more of a checklist for me… And 2) I don’t have enough time to get pictures of everything. Sorry!
I’ll just get into it before you shout at me for being unproductive and for procrastinating!
What’s In My Backpack & Pencil Case? (And Blazer)
1) Pencil Case
Yeah, I mean, I can’t really go to school without it. The list for my pencil case is below the backpack section, if that makes sense.
Every year we get a planner from our school. It has important info like about our school and stuff, some rules and stuff like a periodic table, writing techniques and all the things people never actually use… It’s just for writing homework really and a parent has to sign it every week, for some weird reason.
Basically just exercise books that I need for everyday lessons.
4) Homework Folder
I just keep a homework folder/case kind of thing. So if I have some homework and I don’t have my book for it, or I have an important piece of paper, like a certificate or something, I would put it in there so it doesn’t get damaged.
5) Water Bottle
Even though I don’t drink water
at all often, I keep a water bottle because I still need water.
I love food way too much to miss lunch. I sometimes buy school food, but I normally have food from home.
It rains a lot in England, so it’s a good idea to have an umbrella on me all the time, just in case it unexpectedly rains.
What? A girl has her needs.
Ok sorry that’s cringey I’ll stop being so weird…
9) Hair bands
Just in case my hair band snaps or I need another one. Or if someone needs to borrow one.
I mean, how else would I get into my house? My parents aren’t usually home when I get from school, so I need my keys with me.
I just don’t want to smell bad after P.E or something.
1) Scientific Calculator
In my school we require a scientific calculator, so I have to have one.
2) Blue Pen (+extra)
I normally wrote in blue ink because apparently it helps you remember stuff, I don’t actually know if it works though.. It also looks a tiny bit more colourful and less boring.
3) Black Pen (+extra)
Just if there’s that teacher that tell you to write in black ink or if someone else needs one.
We need to use a pencil in maths, for some weird reason, and we need a pencil for graphs and drawings.
To underline and measure stuff. I don’t know what else to write…
I hate using school scissors because they’re almost always half-broken and they’re tiny. And there’s never enough for a whole class so I prefer to have my own.
Again, there’s never enough and they’re always broken or something. People just play around with them and it’s annoying to use it afterwards.
To erase my mistakes… nothing else really.
To sharpen my pencil and colouring pencils.
9) Colourful Gel Pens
I like adding colour to my page, it makes it less boring and I can colour code notes so it’s easier to remember.
For highlighting important information in texts or in my book.
11) Compass And Protractor
Compass for measuring angles, and protractor for making circles.
We’re not actually allowed to use it at school but I use it if I make mistakes in pen because I don’t like scribbling stuff out in my book.
13) Colouring Pens
I don’t actually know why, I just like having colouring pens with me, even though I don’t use them often. Maybe for like maps or a key for something. I don’t know.
14) Colouring Pencils
I use them for drawing etc. And they might be even more important now that I started Art as a GCSE subject because I will have to draw more using different techniques etc.
(We have uniforms in our school so I also keep some stuff in my blazer too)
We’re not allowed our phones but because I don’t wear a watch, I always look at the time on my phone. My wrist is just too small for a watch!
2) Card Holder
I always have this card holder, and this year I got one as a gift from my aunt. In there, I put my bus pass, so I can get to and from school, lunch card, to buy lunch at school, and £5 just in case there’s like a bake sale or something and I forget to bring money.
I always have tissues with me. No more explanation is needed really.
4) Hand Gel
I have some antibacterial hand gel because there’s always germs everywhere and I don’t like having dirty hands.
5) Latex Bands
Don’t get weirded out! It’s for my braces!
I like to listen to music on my way to and from school. I really like music, if you couldn’t tell from my previous posts.
7) Strepsils Tablets
Those are like tablets when your throat hurts or something, so I have them just in case.
8) Chewing Gum/Tic Tacs
I’m not allowed to chew gum because I have braces, but I don’t like having a smelly breath so it’s either that or tic tacs, depends what I have.
Thats all for today. I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know if you did.
Have a nice day, or night, wherever you’re from. ❤
Love Wiki, going into the unknown…
P.S Good luck with school, you can do it!
