Would love some advice. I'm going back to my first job after having a baby and will be in Year 5 so I'm a tad anxious anyway. I taught Year 5 before so should have lots of books and resources. However, all my teaching resources failed to appear when we moved (after my belongings spent 6 months in storage in the garage of my partner's ex-wife - don't ask!!). He says he might still know where they are but he's been avoiding the issue for so long that I fear the worst. I feel at a bit of a loss without any teaching resources. I know that it will cost a fortune to replace them and besides I can't remember everything I had. It included things like specific planning resources like 100 framework numeracy lessons, to poetry or comprehension books that I might have picked up along the way second hand. I have nothing now. So, what I'd love to know if you're a year 5 teacher (or even year 6 as this is a very able class) is: what books are really valuable to you, is there something you would specifically recommend and what can't you live without, if anything. I don't know what resources the school has. I'm job sharing, doing 2 days a week and we won't be planning really until the beginning of the year. I don't want to leave it until then and want to have some things. I remember Developing Numeracy books were good to get word problems from and comprehension books were good to give a group an activity when doing guided reading. As I'm doing just 2 days, I'm not sure how crazy to go. I've told my other half that he has to pay but I have to keep it sensible. Thanks in advance for any advice.
