i am trying to persuade my headteacher to stump up some readies to improve my classroom, which is looking very tired. What activities/ equipment/ fixtures and fittings would you want to see in your child's classroom?

Swings, board books, bulletin boards with art, baby sign language cards, soft clean toys, rattles, lots of gentle caregivers!

Whoops - we may be misunderstanding my use of the word infant here. I mean young school aged children - aged 5, 6 and 7.

oh yes, we are Our infant rooms here are for newborn to young toddlers.

In THAT case: science kits, board games, books, puzzles, art materials, sensory tables...when I worked in a room with these ages the biggest hit was the karoke machine

Kitchen, dressing up, water/sand tray, writing area, easels, farm, interactive white board that is not three feet off the ground.

There is NOTHING of this sort in my 5 year olds classroom in Australia. No learning through play at all. sad

Lots of construction type toys, computers, listening station - tape/cd player which takes multiple headphones, role play area - kitchen, workbench etc to be rotated with relevant dressing up etc, sand/water/other tactile play, lots of different craft activities to be rotated, appealing reading corner - books in easy to see shelves, comfy cushions/chairs to sit on
