Help needed for a PGCE student who has been offered her first interview please!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Sunscorch, Feb 24, 2012.

  1. I have to say, I'm tending towards the opinion that interview lessons really ought to be your own work.
  2. Well yes they should be, however I don't think there is any harm in asking for a few ideas to run with. [​IMG]
  3. To get started I would think about the time you have spent in Nursery and Y1 and what you felt was a good activity/lesson and from there it may spark an idea which you could then adapt quite easily to Reception children. Also have a think about which topics interest you and work with something which appeals to you and for which you'll have a better level of enthusiasm to get across to the children. All the best.

  4. Thank you and some good ideas to start me off. [​IMG]

    I had a similar interview for a pool last year. I wrote a TA version of the lesson plan, explaining what I'd like her to do in each part of the lesson, which I gave to her just before the lesson. I used her knowledge of the children and wrote things like, "The focus of the lesson is speaking and listening. Please sit with a pair of children who may struggle to engage with the input and support him/her with the paired talk." At my interview the children all came in with sticky name labels on their tops, which was fantastic - not sure if all schools do this though; perhaps you could ask? It helps a lot in terms of engaging with the children if you use their names, because they think you know them if you do :) Good luck!
