Søstrene Grene; School Supplies

For all the Dublin/Athlone based teachers this shop is great! Founded by two Danish ladies – Anna and Clara, it is full of cute bits and pieces, stationery, storage boxes, household items and more.

The Works; School Supplies

I first visited ‘The Works’ while working in the UK and was really impressed with their offers! There are now 3 stores in Ireland (Republic) – one in Killarney and two in Dublin – in the Square in Tallaght and Omni Park in Santry as well as a number of stores in Northern Ireland.

Dealz; School Supplies

I headed to the Square in Tallaght yesterday as I wanted to go to Debenhams. I had to go to Dealz while I was there. The shop was packed – there was barely enough space to walk around as everyone was grabbing bargains. The ‘Back to School’ aisle was manic with people picking up everything […]

Penneys and Dunnes; School Supplies

I’ve been taking a few pictures of bits and pieces that I think would be suitable for school. This weekend, I was at home in Waterford and went into town with mam. We popped into Dunnes and Penneys and I thought these were some nice things for school.

Back to School with Twinkl

Twinkl offered me a 6 month membership to try out and share my thoughts on their resources. The 6 months are nearly up now and I’m devastated. When teaching in the UK, I bought a Twinkl membership while teaching Year 1 and thought it was brilliant – such a time saver and the quality of […]

School facilities -what does your space look like?

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately as I’ll be sharing a room in September. When I worked between two schools as a resource/learning support teacher I had a huge room in one school and in the second school I had a room under the stairs- like a broom closet. I felt a bit […]

Lidl; School Supplies

Special buys in Lidl this week are school supplies. Unfortunately the early bird catches the worm and I was too late so lots of things were sold out by the time I got there. Here are some of the offers.

My Termly Plans (3rd class)

I was looking through files on my computer this morning when I came across my DIP plans for 5th Class – my first set of mainstream class plans. I still vividly remember writing them – tearing my hair out wondering if they would be good enough for the inspector (who was known to be very particular […]

Heatons; School Supplies

I went to Heatons to buy a new washing basket and of course they too have their ‘Back to School’ range. Some great bits and pieces for good prices. (Although the permanent markers, pencils etc are cheap – I’ve tried some of them before and found they don’t last.)
