Hi everyone. I've just got my NQT post, probably in a year 5 class. I'm going in next week to discuss planning, but want to make a proper start on gathering all the things I need for September, so any advice would be appreciated! First off, what should I get hold of in terms of stationary? How many folders will I need? How would you recommend dividing them up? What about notepads? Do I need to buy an academic diary or will the school provide me with one when I start? Then, in terms of setting up my classroom, is there anything you'd recommend me buying? I've not seen what I'll have yet, but I'm assuming thinks like baskets and boxes will come in handy. How about any good books to read to the class or supplement the reading area? The other area I'm stuck is in terms of rewards. On placement I taught year 3, and they were more than happy with stickers, bouncy balls and little packets of sweets, but I'd imagine year 5 are just that bit too old to appreciate stickers? Any other suggestions? Sorry for the mass of questions, I'm just too excited and want to get out there shopping!
