Thank Your Teacher with Camera Obscura: top ‘thank yous’ from our gift shop!

We’re reaching the end of term now, so kids might be thinking about getting a little something for their favourite teachers…and we’ve got just the thing to say ‘thank you’ in a unique way.

CameraObscuraSchoolBooks

‘F In….’ Books

Books

We now stock some brilliant books that gather together funny answers to questions about history, science, literature and more. F in Retakes, F in English, Blackboard Blunders, amongst others, are hilarious (sometimes vaguely worrying) reads that will remind teachers of the best attempts their own pupils have made at trying to pass exams. Here are some wee snippets from F In School and F In Science

Q. Define Capital Punishment … A. When you get in trouble for not putting a capital letter at the beginning of a sentence.

Q. Where are vegetable oils found? … A. In the oils aisle

Ducks, ducks and ducks!

Keyrings

‘The world according to teachers’ is a little book on a keyring containing lots of quotes about teachers and teaching….

Ducks

For quirkier teachers, we have dressed-up ducks. Or for teachers that particularly like ducks.

 Mugs

For their tea and coffee, what teacher wouldn’t love a heat-sensitive Pacman mug? Or a mug that changes from a day image to a night image when you add the tea? We have a large selection of unusual mugs that will probably be ‘borrowed’ in the staff room.

Cuddly Bears

Who doesn’t love a teddy bear? Particularly a plush teddy bear in a hoodie!

Chocolates & Shortbread

For teachers with a sweet tooth, pick up some shortbread or chocolate.

 

Worry-Eaters

A great addition to any classroom, teachers can keep a worry-eater to aid communication with pupils, who can write any questions or concerns and put them in the worry-eater.

Melting clocks

When counting down the minutes until lunch, wouldn’t it be nice to have an unusual clock to look at? Some art teachers especially will love the reference!

If they always have a book on their desk, why not gift them a special 3D bookmark?
