    Hi all,
    I'm new here so I hope this is ok...
    I am in the process of applying to teach with my first interview for primary PGCE being held in a couple of weeks!! I have been asked to 'plan to teach a group of other applicants, for approx 5 mins; as though you were teaching an introduction to a topic to YEAR ONE children (like roleplay)' I can choose any topic from the national curriculum..... Any one have any ideas? I have some but unsure if they are suitable as 5 minutes is not very long at all! I also need to create a lesson plan for this! HELP! After the 5 mins I then have to do a presentation about 'what and how I would continue to teach this topic'. I personally feel this is the easy bit. I know I can fill up this time with my different ideas of how I would continue.
    Does anyone have a similar interview experience so I know what I'm in for?! Any Do's and Don'ts?
    I'm very nervous!

    TIA :)
