Hi Theo, I'm so happy I got an interview at the school I really want to work at! Now I'm preparing for it, and planning the lesson. The topic they've set is quite a tricky one to teach (I'm a Physics teacher, and it's something I would always teach through a practical and analysis of the results - not possible in 30 minutes!). Anyway, I think I know what I'll do for the lesson (and I'll make sure to read through the interview clickables you've made), but I was wanting to ask the school for clarification on what the pupils have covered already. They've told me in their letter the two topics they've studied previously (they're linked to the interview topic), but all they've said is the name of the topics and that I'll be teaching top set. I was going to email them tomorrow and ask what exam board they cover at GCSE (to make sure I link my objectives to this and use appropriate keywords e.t.c.), and just to check whether they have studied the necessary equations for the topic so that my questions for them aren't going to be just met with confusion if they don't have the starting point that I've assumed they have! I had 4 questions to ask them overall, but I just wondered if, in your experience, it's ok to send an email like that or if it seems rather "pushy" as they've already given me some information and they want to give everyone the same information. I just don't want to mess it up because I really want this job!
