Interview - Reading a Story. Please help.

Discussion in 'Primary' started by mross1, Apr 23, 2012.

  1. Hi everyone, please can I have some help?!
    I have been invited to my first interview on Wednesday 2nd and have been asked to read a story (for 15 min) to a Reception Class. If successful then I will be invited for a
    formal interview.
    I was thinking of reading a story sack with props and putting some pictures/words up on the interactive board, to include visual strategies with the use of
    props and ICT.
    Does anyone have any other ideas? What will they really be looking for in those 15mins?
    Should I sit
    them down for the whole time whilst I read or should I also include some group
    work too? Would that be appropriate for Reception? Do you think I need to take a lesson plan with me? I plan on being able to explain what this story would lead me on to teaching next, why I chose it etc.
    Also, I'm a bit stuck
    for the interview questions, for example 'current issues', is there anything that I need to be aware of other than the current focus on Phonics and the new curriculum/EYFS framework?

    Please, any help, advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  2. You'[ve been given 15 mins to read a story - use those 15 mins to read the story!! Ask questions, use props, discuss the text - ask about authors, what it is called, what the children might think the story is about just from the front cover. I don't think you would be able to fit much more in!
