Help with the new curriculum

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first time on here and a need some advice please.

    I am lucky enough to have a job interview on Tuesday - I have planned a 15 minute English activity for a year 6 class of about 26 pupils. I have planned to do a persuasive writing task, where pupils will have to use persuasive techniques to sell an apple.

    My dilemma is whether persuasive language is even an objective on the new NC? My objective was: To use persuasive techniques effectively for a targeted audience.

    I should say I have been out of the classroom for 2 years and so have missed a lot of the new curriculum training. I don't want to look foolish in front of prospective new employers. Any help would be much appreciated!

    First of all, well done for getting that interview! A success already.

    For the question.about the nat curriculum you either actually check it against the document - you can Google it - or you ask on the Primary forum, where you'll find people in the know.

    Now for general help

    Below you have Links to the newly-transferred advice articles from old-TES. Some of them are not relevant to you, but I am including them all for the benefit of other posters.

    Questions to ask at the end of your interview

    On Old-TES we had a very nice tradition that when you actually got a job, you started a brand-new thread (not adding it to this one - a brand-new thread) where you told us your good news. You call it Dear Theo - I got that job!and this gives everyone a chance to congratulate you. It also gives them hope and inspiration for their own jobseeking, to see you successful.

    If you see one of these threads, make sure you congratulate people!

    So I will end by saying that we look forward to seeing your Dear Theo - I got that job!

    Best Wishes
