Hi all, So late last night I got a phone call from a school asking me to attend interview. The lesson is to be no longer than 30 mins, ''a warm up activity then literacy task", with half a class of year 1s with a widdeee range of ability. -Has to be on traditional tales So... my idea. L.O. I can use adjectives to describe a character Talk about different fairy tale characters - goldilocks, the wolf, ugly step sisters and cinderella. Look at sheet of adjectives I have made and describe if we could decribe any of the characters using those words- use talking partners Then send HA with a sheet on the wolf- they are to think of some adjectives and put them in sentences describing the wolf. High-mid ability have goldilocks, they are to write sentences also but will have prompts of some words scattered on table- to help with spelling,etc. Mid- low, have a picture of the ugly stepsisters, they are just to write words around the picture- they will also have words scattered around table. I will work with Low ability, thinking of adjectives to write around picture of Goldilocks. What does everyone think? Sound like a good lesson? and would the timing be enough? - I could do 5-10 mins on carpet, then 15 mins on seats writing and 5 mins at end to share some words as plenary? Any constructive criticism is appreciated?! Thanks!
