I've got my first interview for a Year 3/4 class for an NQT post. The subject for my 40 minute observed lesson is 'writing' for a mixed class of 30 children. I have also been told that the school value this term is 'cooperation'. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I have no experience with this age group! At the moment I'm thinking of a 'poetry slam' to keep things engaging and fast paced and the school seems to be quite big on creative learning. But this would be a risk for me as I have not done it before! But I thought I could link it to the theme of cooperation, and have them working in groups to create their poems together. Any thoughts or other suggestions? Thanks in advance!
