    Hi
    I have been invited to do a 30minute lesson observation for yr5/6 on whatever I choose at a school for a prospective KS2 position.
    I have severely limited experience in upper KS2 but I am going to give it my best shot!
    I was considering doing Kenning's poems as they are simple enough to be completed in the time given and can easi;y be differentiated by outcome/ complexity for the year group divide.

    However I am unsure whether kennings poems will stretch the class enough as it is likely they will have done it before.
    Many Thanks

    That would be my concern. I observed two year 2 teachers last week who were writing kennings with their classes, and a criticism of my fellow observer in one lesson was the lack of extension for the more able.

    Look at the literacy strategy website and see what sort of thing year 5/6 study to chose a LO and activity. Look at the NC descriptors for level 3/4/5 to get an idea of pitch.
