    Hi everyone,

    I've got a friend whose starting her NQT year with a mixed Yr 5/6 and I'm wanting to make her an essentials box, so far I've got tones of biros (all colours) staple gun and refills, mug, coffee, tea bags, head ache tablets, hand wash, stickers, note pads, post-it notes,

    and that's where I just cant think having spent all of my career in nursery, pre-school and reception - I feel so out of touch with KS2

    What I would really like is a personalised stamp. I don't know where you can get them, but if you can find out, I think it would be a great gift. Useful for marking work: "Miss Kartoshka says well done!" (or similar). I'd also like one that says "This book belongs to Miss Kartoshka" (I take a lot of my own books into school, and it would look nicer than just scribbling my name in the corner). Or a name labelling thing, so that things like her staple gun that you've put in the box can be labelled with her name, and don't get borrowed and lost.

    Oh, and a lot of teachers think a laminator is essential. If your friend is of the same mindset, perhaps you could add some laminating pouches to the box.
