    Remember a good part of the task is to see how you relate to the children, so choose a book you enjoy. Then that quality will come over in the observation.
    Start by looking at some of the Yr 6 raeading objectives and then think how you could help the children achieve that objective in that time-frame.

    I think your idea is good as it will appeal/be easy to access for all abilities.

    Make sure you can really explain to the panel why the book is special to you. This shows that you are not just 'performing' for the interview.

    I often used books with no words (or few words) - it lets the children se their imagination without being wrong.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on and what you decided on!

    You could find a book that demonstrates one of the school values, or fbv. Wonder picture book is good for bullying/ discussing tolerance. LO could be to infer a message from a text.
