    Hiya I know no specific answers can be given but I just wanted to know people's opinion.
    I have an interview teaching an early years class and wondered what were peoples thought on doing a plenary? Would you/wouldn't you? Do I call them back and go through the success criteria etc? Im only wondering because it is early years. If it was year 1 and above I wounden't hesitate to do a plenarybut Im not sure how necessary it is.
    I only ask because we usually do a plenary before lunch and before hometime; not after every lesson but I know some places do. Its not done after every lesson coz the children are in free flow.
    Any advice is appreciated.

    You will be judged on the progress and learning. You will be, quite probably, asked how you assessed the progress and learning.
    I would have thought that a plenary was quite useful.

    Thank you for your reply.
    In the back of my mind I was thinking of doing something even if it is really short, just to show that I am aware of assessing learning.
    Thanks again
