    My daughters school bag – PENCIL CASE (with added personal doodles on), TISSUE (probably used), SCHOOL BOOKS (if they are not left on the table at home), WATER BOTTLE (probably dripping from the bottom of the bag), TOY (that isn’t really allowed to be going to school), plus any useful items that may be found on the way to school, ie. stones, sticks, leaves etc.
