    Hi, I've got an interview next week. I have to take in an object of my choice to do a speaking and listening activity. I've got some good ideas, but wondered if anyone has got any tried and tested ones?
    Thanks in advance!

    I'd be looking at what they are doing as their class topic this term and seeing if there was any way of linking the object to the topic...that way you look like you've done your research on what they're learning and also they will be quite engaged with the activity as it's relevant to current learning.

    First can I suggest that what any panel wishes to see, is your own orignal ideas rather than someone else's tried and trusted ones. ;) So well done on having some ideas of your own already.

    I like ViciousChicken's idea of researching current topics being studied. :)

    As @Lara mfl 05 says, the ideas must be your own. ‘Tried and tested’ means tried and tested for someone else, not you. You can always try an idea out on your current class and see how they respond. But what may work in one environment with a particular teacher or group of children may not work in another. Have plenty of options up your sleeve of different directions things could go in, in case the grand plan is not received as enthusiastically as you’d hoped.
