I would suggest: * Berocca/ vitamin C/ cold cures * a nit comb * anti bacterial hand wipes or similar * an organic veg box! All the above- I am semi serious here! You will need suitable clothes for teaching practice- if you are going into Primary, *do not* be tempted by anything dry clean only or pale colours. On your first visit you will get covered in snot, blood or paint! go for machine washable stuff that needs minimum ironing. Comfortable shoes, as another poster advised If Early Years/ KS1, trousers rather than skirts are sensible A *very* warm waterproof coat for playground duty and waiting at bus stops.
