Hi all, Really hoping there's someone out there who can give me some advice. I have an interview for a Reception post next week and need to teach a phonics lesson as part of this. All I've been told by the school is this: I'll be teaching 10 children The lesson last 25 minutes The children have just started working in Phase 2 There is a Smartboard and a range of resources available (which I can request to have prepared in advance) As its half term I'm not able to ask any more before the interview date (there's just not enough time)so I don't know which sets of letters/sounds the children have learnt so far. I know the school are really looking for someone who can accurately assess and extend the learners well and I'm wondering how to do this if I don't know more details... I know interview lessons are generally about how you develop relationships and show care for teaching, as well as communicate expectations, but I'm just worried I won't be pitching the lesson correctly and that it won't follow the system letters and sounds does. If anyone experienced in being interviewed for reception posts and in teaching phonics is reading this then please help! What would you do?
