Both new year 1 teachers were appalled by the lack of resources in our new rooms on transition morning, and by the terrible state of what is there. We are supposed to be improving play based learning in year 1 in the coming year so want to make a definite and clear request for worthwhile necessities. However both of us are new to year 1, and not really very experienced in FS or KS1, so aren't terribly sure what would be essential. Soooo what do you have and where are good places to get things from? The usual educational supplies catalogues, don't have much that inspires. Also what good storage do you have? We desperately need things specific to maths and literacy as well as general resources. I know year 1 isn't really EY, but as this is about play based resources I thought you people might have a better knowledge of what and where. Hope you don't mind.
