It's a tradition at our school that the leavers present a gift to the school. I suspect we will have between £50 and £70, give or take a bit.

Anyone able to suggest some really good resources/equipment/books that would be nice to have and hopefully last a while. Would prefer to buy one larger item (or set of items) rather than lots of bits and pieces IYKWIM.

Picnic rugs so we could sit outside more comfortably. What a lovely idea!

Games for wet play.

Board games, cluedo, operation, tsuro, dungeon, gigamic quarto, mini table football, mini snooker, spirograph, jenga....

When DS1 left primary school he bought a fruit tree for the school garden so that everyone could enjoy it and the fruit. Four years on, DS2 loves pointing out his big brother's tree to everyone.

Decent, up to date reading books for the class library.

In every school I have worked in, the libraries have survived on books donated by parents. Which is great for those further down the school but by the time children have finished with the books they are reading in year 6 they are in year 7 or 8 or 9. Alternatively (if my 17 year old DS is anything to go by) he's kept all his books from that age as he likes to read them again. So books for older children rarely get donated.
