    Hi all,

    I have an observed classroom task as part of my teacher training interview. It will be 30mins with 30 Year 3 children.

    I have to choose a book or an extract to share with them and then deliver an activity based on the reading.

    Any book recommendations? I was thinking of BFG, Faraway Tree, Rainbow Crow or Voices in the Park.

    Any activity suggestions?

    Thank you!

    You only have 30 mins so pick a book you can read all of maybe? I would choose a shortish picture book. Choose your favourite one (your love of it will inspire, hopefully) and look through the Year 3 objectives. Choose an activity which will work with your chosen book and objective.

    I would take a simple book like Tiddler and base the lesson around writing dialogue.
