I didn't get a primary job today because my lesson had too much in it and I assumed the children knew too much. The school doesn't send any info about the given children so I assume (obviously wrongly) that a Y5 would have a y4 background knowledge. Ohh, it is so frustrating. My lesson was checked by my head and deemed as fine. Apparently a 30 min lesson shouldn't have any recording and just keep to discussion. That I don't understand as that would be part of my assessment, wouldn't it? 1.What do you expect to see for AFL? Usual traffic light recording on work but what to do if not recording? 2.How do I ensure they are all engaged IF it is left to discussion, surely the quieter, less able or plain lazy ones will just let the others do the work? I don't understand why it was so wrong. If it were my class, then my expectations of them plus knowing their prior knowledge would have made this a success. Apparently interviews are to show what you can do and they want you to do well. Hmm, there was an internal candidate too, enough said.
