I've got an interview next week teaching a 30 minute lesson mixed ability Year 2 class. I've found on the school website the plan of what the class is doing in each subject this term. Would it be a good idea to plan a lesson that fits in with something they're doing or should I pick something that is stand alone and doesn't need any prior knowledge? Part of me thinks that stand alone would be good because I don't want to risk doing something similar to what they've already done in that topic, so it being to easy or boring. I've got an idea for either way, just wondering which would be best to go for.
