    They want to employ YOU, YOUR persomality so you need to show off yourself your ideas and your competence. Go with your ideas of props use silly voices if you're comfortable etc whatever yoo feel comfortable with, then you'll impress.

    Happy New Year - and good news already. Well done for getting that interview!
    However . . .
    Sorry, but . . . I don't give help, ideas, comments or ANYTHING about interview lessons. And I don't suggest that any other poster does, either.
    There are 3 main reasons for that:
    Firstly, it's got to be you, and your ideas, so that you feel comfortable about what you're doing, and so that the school sees you, and not me or somebody else. And secondly and more importantly, because <u>you</u> are the expert here, not me!
    So you will just have to sit down, think of what your aims are (including the Ofsted criteria - one of the links in the Interview Tips clickable in the Welcome thread says what schools are looking for in interview lessons),
    Take a look also at my Possible interview questions clickable in the Welcome thread
    Make sure you plan a lesson that enables children to progress, and have a plan that you will press on the observer that includes differentiation, just in case you don't get round to using it in the lesson itself.
    And a third reason is that this is a public forum, and other candidates for the same job might see the suggestions too . . . and wouldn't you look daft doing the same thing!
    Best of luck! I look forward to you starting a thread that says: Dear Theo, I got that job!

    Here is what I think :

    - you could do a zig zag book and draw the fruit and place one number on it - children could colour and copy a line of their own numbers
    - you could talk with the children about what would you eat if you were a caterpillar, they could make a list (mark making) model - less able make a list with them.
    - you could have laminated pictures of the story and work with a group to put the pictures in order and retell the story.
    - you could even set up a table and get the children to make beautiful butterfly pictures.

    Hope this helps!
