Subscription to a site like URBrainy?
A cool bookcase? You know, like the ones in Consortium that teachers always go 'If only I had the money...'
A visiting workshop? Google STEM workshops near you - they are brilliant.

If you don't already have them, place value dice, a giant bead bar, place value sliders, lots of Diennes, double sided counters, subscription to Maths Frame - things to make your Maths lessons hands on.

Classroom pet? Setup for a bunny, guinea pigs, fish, hermit crabs, etc?

Numicon is all the rage, if your school doesn't have it already.

I am very envy of your budget! We get bugger all!

Doowrah Fri 15-Jan-16 19:05:24

Yes...numicon is having a renaissance again ...we have lots in school tho' sorry to hear you have no budget...I won't tell you what mine was to start with!

Pets are a good idea...my school not fond of them sadly.

Class budget - what's that?

We never get any money to spend on anything sad

Used to be £300 each, now it's bugger all
