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 they could fit in their baskets! I tried to take pictures of my favourite bits and pieces which you might use in your classroom next year.


Academic planners and diaries (all €1.50)

Classroom Organisation (Folders, Box files, document wallets, magazine files and letter trays)

I bought the document wallets, magazine files and letter trays last year! The document wallets are really good quality and perfect for loop card games/ flashcards etc. The magazine files are brilliant – they fit at least 8 books, are very sturdy and the colours brighten up your storage/organisation. The letter trays are also great – they stack on top of one another too which is very handy.

Mindfulness Colouring Books

These are brilliant and a bargain at only €1.50. I usually use these at the beginning of the day as a relaxing activity or after lunch after a busy morning. The children love them!

Stationery and art supplies

Lots of pens, pencils, markers, colouring pencils, crayons etc. (Dealz brand – BIC, Sharpie also available). Wiggly eyes, pipe cleaners, pom poms, foam shapes, glitter – great for art press!

Lollipop Sticks

These can be used in so many ways in the classroom; for maths (counting, sorting colours, groups of 10 etc.) when choosing a child to do something (I always use the same colour for each child), art (construction).



15 pieces of different colours – perfect for drawing outside.

Foam face stickers

These are great when learning about emotions (SPHE lessons) or in the resource room.


These are great for displays! Write the key information on them.


Lots of copies and hardback notebooks – great value!


Overall, a trip to Dealz is a must before going back to school! Check out their site here.
