Teaching Packs; A review

I bought a Teaching Packs membership two years ago and thought it was brilliant. When my membership was up, I had just moved back to Ireland and had no job so decided to wait. Then when I started working, I forgot to renew my membership. I continued to follow ‘Teaching Ideas’ on Facebook and regularly […]

Recreate Ireland; Creativity through Reuse

Last week as I was browsing Facebook a post from Recreate Ireland popped up on my page – I had previously liked the page and I knew my school had a membership but that was about all I knew so I clicked onto their page and was really interested in learning more about them. I […]

My Back to School Haul

I love shopping for back to school and started picking up bits and pieces at the end of June. This year I really didn’t need much as I will be working in resource and have lots of things already. However, I decided to pick up a few new bits too.

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 […]

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.)

Tesco; School Supplies

I popped into Tesco on my way home from meeting a friend for lunch today and noticed they have lots on offer for Back to School. While I know its only July and we still have a month before we go back, there were some great deals available in Tesco today.
