Dear Theo - Interview!

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by mill29, May 7, 2012.

  1. Thanks to your wonderful advice I have secured an interview for a job I <u>really really </u>want! I'm not asking for advice about the lesson (45 minutes, maths, Year 1) as a) I know you won't give me any and b) I've purchased a copy of "Pimp your lesson" so hopefully I'll wow them with that.
    However here's the problem. I've been asked to email them copies of a week's worth of current planning for Year 1 Maths and a foundation subject. I am not currently teaching in Year 1 - I am doing PPA cover so I don't have any current maths planning. I could obviously use my music plans for the other subject planning but what should I do about the maths plans?
    1)ask the Year 1 teachers for an example of the ones they currently use?
    2)Call the school and explain the situation and ask what they want?
    3)make up a week's worth of plans based around the topic I have been asked to teach?

    Oh well done! Super news.
    If you have the time, I suggest that you go for Option (3). If not, then I suggest option (2), offering to provide either the music or to make up a week's worth of plans based around the topic - but then you'll have to rush because you won't have today to do it!
    So really . . . you had best do what they want.
    Looking forward to that new thread called Dear Theo - I got that job!
    Best wishes.
