Dear Theo, A few questions about my first interview...

    Dear Theo, thanks for your advice on applications (and everyone else!), I have finally got an interview for next week and I have a few questions which would really help. Apologies if they seem trivial, i'm already very nervous.
    1) Is it common practice to ask to speak to someone about the class and any SEN requirements there might be?
    2) Can i request a seating plan marked with names to be given on the day?
    3) If I include a quiz at the end to show progression, would it be a good idea to have a little prize for winners? Maybe some sweets? I would be likely to do this in class, but not sure how it would look in an interview. Maybe like bribary [​IMG]
    4) I know the lesson needs to be my own, however i have found a good interactive game on TES, would it be ok to use? (Obviously not the whole resource).
    5) Would the pupils normally work in their books, or is it better to create a worksheet which they can stick in?
    6) The lesson is 25 mins, any tips on how to get the best out of that time? e.g. still use a starter, 1 activity and plenary.
    Many thanks for yours and anyone else's help!
