Interview lesson advice

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by petrapan, May 19, 2011.

  1. I've been asked to teach for 30 minute, anything I like, Year 2. I'm finding it quite hard to think of the best thing to do as I don't know what they will already have covered! I've never taught year 2 before (the job is for year 3).
    I've had two ideas.
    One- science, identifying some of the characteristics of living things, ind activity- having children sort pictures of different things into groups. Only concern is that it may not be easy to show differentiation clearly as I'd normally put them in mixed ability groups to do this sort of task- would that be frowned upon during an interview lesson?
    Two- a maths activity eg. rounding or doubling, ind activity- using number lines or ladybirds & dots to consolidate. Easier to differentiate, but I don't know what sort of resources are available to me or where they'd be in their learning with this.
    Any advice would be appreciated.
