  3. First of all you need to choose a topic/subject, and have a look at the NC guidelines to just get some ideas started.
    I had to actually do a 30 minute lesson with a group of Year 2's for my interview and it was to be "based on a story of my choice with activities to extend learning".
    I chose to do a science lesson, and I have put a pretty good description of how I did it on another thread ont his board I think its called "Interview.....done" or something like that!
    In response to the different points you have to cover here are my thoughts;
    1. Choose your topic and then we might be able to help more - make sure it is something you feel confident with (which is why I chose a science lesson)
    2. Make sure your introduction of the topic is different or interesting and fun, I didn't read the story at all, you need to capture their imagination and get them thinking right from the start
    3. Once you have your topic then this will be easy - once I had chosen what I wanted to do I was able to think of <u>hundreds</u> of different activities, and I actually struggled to decide which ones to do, but I did put in my lesson pack the extra things I had thought of, along with a topic grid of activities that I would do based around Jack and The Beanstalk across all curriculum subjects. Make sure you consider, lone/pair/group working, a good mix of activities, plenty of social aspects and ACTIVE learning.
    4. Again, make it interesting and fun, I did a "STOP" activity to check their understanding, I went over what they had covered in the lesson but made mistakes on purpose, the children had to shout "STOP" and put their hand up, I then asked them what I had said/done wrong and got them to correct me. They loved it and it's a great way of checking understanding.
    Best of luck!
