    Hi, I have been offered an interview for next week working with children who are not in school. My preferred age group is KS1 and 2, however my observation is with a KS3/4 child of unknown ability ( as this is who they will have in the center at the time) and I need to do an engaging lesson of 20 minutes. I have taught this age before however I have not had to do an interview lesson for these keystages before. I am looking at different ideas on line but am a little uncertain as I do not know age or ability. Does any one have any tried an tested ideas that would work for this age or unknown ability? It will be a one to one lesson. Thanks in advance. Fionn

    Try fractals.

    The fractal antenna is very interesting.

    There are printable resources on this website.

    Choose something that stands alone.

    Take more than one version, a scaffolded version if the child struggles.
