    Hi everyone,
    I have a GTP interview coming up and have been asked to prepare two starter activities for two different lessons. I have had quite a bit of experience when it comes to starters however, they need to be 15 mins long and I am used to starters that last only 5 mins. any suggestions?
    The first class are year 8's who have learnt the story of how the Buddha came to be.
    The second class are year 7's and the topic is as wide as Easter.
    Thank You

    The emphasis for both starters and plenaries seems to be on reflection time. So you could do an IS, or other 'shorter' starter- but then allow for the extra time so that students can 'reflect' on their experience, feedback, conversation.

    15 mins does seem quite long for a starter- so you should probably make sure it is relevant to the lesson (starters don't always have to be) and incorporate some opportunity for you to assess the learning of students.
