  1. OK so in a fortnight or so I finish my first year teaching placement, I was just loooking for suggestions on what to buy for people.
    I'd like a present for my class mentor, (she doesn't drink and is settled down with husband and child).
    Something for the TA she's be incredibly helpful.
    I'd like a present for the staff generally in the staffroom.
    Something for my reception class.

    Chocolates for all of the first three...I mentor several students at the moment and so am hoping for lots of choccies and wine in the next few weeks!

    For the class some books always go down well. Or special cushions, glittery is good.
     
  4. I always buy things for the classroom.....I've bought them an ant observation farm thingy from baker ross this time...I know the class would love it.x

    Yankee Candles!!
    I had 2 teachers that I worked closely with who I brought Yankee Candle diffusers for, I brought my mentor a gift box that they made up for me in the shop and I brought the dead of dept a Medium Jar. They loved them, and the Yankee Candle shop wraps them too... ta-da!
     
  6. I got my class Amazon vouchers to use on books for their brand new class Kindles.
    I didn't get the teachers anything extra...
