    Default Posters ! Lack of ?

    Morning guys

    I'm looking for some new educational posters, you know the kind, Food Pyramid, Alphabet, Colours and such like, but the shop I used to buy them from has been a victim of the times and disappeared

    Anyone know any online shops, or major oulets plz ?


    Cheers All

    I don't have any up and rarely ever had. I can't see the point as most of the children I have couldn't read or understand them and they clutter the wall.

    I have two lovely children's prints on the wall one of an animal hospital in a wood that was given to me over 50 years ago by my grandparents and a print by the same artist that I spotted myself last year by the same artist but it is a School room in a wood. Both by Margaret Tarrant

    I then put up various things including postcards of places and things the children know, many of them have been chosen by the children over the years when we have been on outings. Sometimes things to do with the topic we are looking at are put on a cork board.

    I collected lots from the EYE magazine from WH Smith over the past year or so. They were about different countries, festivals, colours, food, etc. but I just didn't have the space and also felt that older children would benefit more, even though I do help the kids I look after with lots of things.

    I gave them to a local after-school club but they didn't make use of them and I found them just stashed away in a cupboard that I also use for a toddler group I run in the same hall!

    Ofsted have never asked me whether I put up posters in my home.

    We make a lot of our own posters/displays by cutting and sticking from old CBeebies magazines and similar.

    You can also get freebies from relevant organisations such as Change For Life, etc.
