Primary Interview - Problem solving oral starter and reading a book in an exciting and engaging way!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by laura_williams89, Jun 11, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    I wondered if anyone could help me, I have my first interview on Wednesday and have some ideas for my teaching task but wondered if anyone had any ideas they could give me.
    I will be teaching a year 4 class.
    I am expected to teach a 20 min oral and mental starter based on solving one step and two step problems.
    I then need to read a book to them in an exciting and engaging way...
    Thank you

  2. Do you have any ideas to share and maybe people can suggest improvements?

    What about I think of a number questions e.g I think of a number, double it and add 5. The answer is 47. What is my number?
    (Obviously use larger numbers for Year 4) add more steps for the more able and less for lower ability. Provide a frame to help LA with the problem-solving.
    You could model an example then hand out problem cards for children to solve in pairs.

    Hope this helps.
