If your child wanted to give a book to the school library at the end of their last year at that school, who would you get them to give/ present it to? Their class teacher, even though it's not really for them?
Yes - it's slightly different, but my daughter wanted to give a book to the class library. We wrapped it up and gave it to the teacher, explaining that it was a present for the class, at the same time as giving her a bunch of flowers.
We did this when DS1 left reception - instead of getting his teachers (he had two) presents we gave the class a bunch of DS1's favourite books! So no flowers or choccies for the teachers that year but it was what DS1 wanted to do!
