Unfortunately some school don't have enough pupils so that each year group has their own class. It's not an ideal situation, but unfortunately life is not perfect and we have to make the best of what we have. Living away from cities this situation isn't all that rare. I'm not expecting people to tell me exactly what I should do and how to teach outstanding lessons, I panicked yesterday when I saw I had the interview because it's been a few years since I've had one. It's just a shame that when people need encouragement, they get comments that make them wonder why they bother. My main idea at the moment is to group the children so that they are of mixed ability, and to give each group a series of pictures. The children will then use these pictures to make their own story. They will have 10-15 minutes to plan, and then will tell the rest of the class their story. At the end of the lesson, I will show the children an animation clip, which is where I have had the pictures from in the first place. I believe that this develops their language skills, and will show differentiation because of the mixed ability groups. The children will have wipe boards to jot their ideas down, but this will be mainly an oracy lesson so writing is not required. The planning is in the early stages, but how does this sound?
