    have to teach a year 2 class mental maths for 20mins, on a topic of my
    Anybody have a good fun, inspiring idea?
    My mind has gone to mush in the panic of actually getting an interview!

    Well done on getting that interview!
    Now it's not a good idea to get an idea from us, or from other public websites, as it could be seen by another candidate who does the same thing (won't you look daft!), or worse, by the Head of the school who then thinks that you haven't got any ideas of your own. You have really!
    So calm down and try and think it through calmly.
    This thread here gives links to two more threads that are of interest to you.

    That's what we like to hear. That's what interviewers like to see.
    Best of luck with it.
