Just got feedback from a second failed EYFS job interview. The kids loved me, the lesson and interview went well, but I fell down on observations. I was trained not to engage with children during observations but to step back and simply write what they do. Last time I was told I wrote "too much dialogue".Well I fixed that this time! This time the feedback was that I did not engage enough with the children I was observing. One of the other candidates said she did not write much observation but made sure she engaged with all the children - I am pretty sure she got the job! So hints please - what do they want for 15 minutes of EYFS observations? Should I ask if they want me to engage or not? Any help gratefully received as I begin another round of application forms!
