I had copies so old they weren't even in colour!
I kept a few posters but the rest went to the tip and I've never needed them. With the new curriculum next year things are changing yet again.

Put them to an Oxfam bookshop. I would be delighted to find a pile of them near me!

Ask a trainee teacher if they want them for resources? Freecycle them? Put them on ebay for 1p plus postage? I sold loads of my resource books on ebay when I quit and some of them bid up quite a bit.

All my Bright Ideas books have gone to the charity shop,made me feel very old flicking through. Teachers today don't know they're born-internet,Wordgrin

So definitely get rid of Child and Junior Ed???? Will I find everything I need on-line should I return? Dd's teacher is v young could ask if she wants them.

Would be nice not to lug them to the next house,dp has hauled them into every attic we've had,he'll be sooooo happy smile

Offer them to your local school for the teachers to go through.
