Interview advice -

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by xkeeleyx, Jun 13, 2011.

  1. Good morning all.
    I'm hoping that some of you lovely people could possibly help me out [​IMG]
    I'm an NQT and just this morning recieved a letter inviting me for an interview this coming Friday (the 17th) for a FS1 teacher post.
    As part of my interview they've asked me to run a 30minute long good quality 'learning through play' activity of my choosing as part of continuous provision. I've tried brainstorming some ideas, but as I can choose to do anything I'm not 100% sure where to start or focus on. I really want to pack a punch and do something different - so I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions for activities that I could do?

    I also have to give a brief 5 minute presentation entitled "How you can achieve high quality learning in an integrated foundation unit" - any tips for this too would be greatly appreciated as ideally I want it to stand out and not just cover basics.
    I have taught in FS2 before quite a few times so know what FS is about, but for my last couple of placements at university and for the first teaching term of my NQT year, I have been up in KS1 so feel a little out of touch.

    Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.
  2. Anyone?
    The only idea I have is to look at, and talk about, recognising different patterns - such as what the children notice about the colours/shapes etc. Then I would have children make their own patterned necklaces and bracelets using cut up coloured straws and string, either making their own pattern and then describing it, or copying patterns off cards and then describing it.

    Would this be along the right lines?
