Early Years Teacher Interview at Childrens Centre nursery

    Hi all
    I am currently studying a PGCE in primary education and have an interview for a position at a childrens centre within an nursery/reception aged class (state run/term time). I need plan a 20 mins activity which can be done in the free flow classroom as I could have a number of children at one time. I was thinking of either gloop play (corn flour) or making playdough and exploring it by adding textures such as pasta, oats and sand and adding scents and colours. I am not sure what would be best to do?
    My experience before my PGCE was in a nursery class with children aged 2-3 years so am keen to do a creative and exploratory activity.
    Any advice from early years teachers of what would be best for the interview activity would be fab, thank you

    Either would be good as it shows you doing something creative and hands on. Dont forget to focus on the language.
