I have my first interview next week and have been asked to take a 30 minute lesson with a literacy focus in a reception class. I've never taught in reception before however so I am very worried about what to plan and organisation etc. I was thinking of linking it to a story but am not sure what kind of activities to plan for them so any ideas would be welcome! Also I have often seen about 3 or 4 activities being done within a reception class when I have observed and if I do this should I let them choose their own activity? I am worried of spending the entire 30 minutes deciding which activity to do. Should I make notes on observations or should I be interacting with the children? I have also seen other people say they got the LSA to make notes about observations as well, should I do this? I am very confused about it all so any advice would be appreciated, all I know is it should have a literacy focus and I will have 30 children and one LSA. Thank you.
