Hello, I have been invited to an interview this week with the focus of literacy - developing high quality writing to 30 children with a LSA. I have a lesson in mind, but was wondering if it is ok to have the LSA work with a focused group of mixed ability to write a letter (to Woody from toy story), I will also have a focused group of mixed ability, and the rest of the children will use the continuous provision - but provide resources that encourage letter writing? E.g. word mats, templates etc. The email said 'we would like to observe you teach a 30 minute literacy lesson with the focus of developing high quality writing' My lesson (I got this from another user and thought it was a brilliant idea!) Introduction: show a new toy and letter from Woody asking the children to look after the toy and to write a letter back telling him all the fun things they will do with him. Main: focused groups and continuous provision Plenary: invite all children to the carpet to share what we have been writing. Does this sound like what they are asking for? Or is it a direct lesson on developing writing e.g. finger spaces? Should some children be sent off to chose their learning, as keeping 30 children on the carpet for 30 minutes seems like a long time. Any help would be amazing.
