Hello! I have an interview on Monday. I was originally told that I wouldn't have to do any teaching, just more interacting with the children, but now I have to bring a story to read to a group of 20 Year 3 children. I've only just read the email and I am so glad that I did check it!! Honestly! Anyway - it doesn't say I have to do any teaching, just this.... "You will have a 15 minute slot in which to read a story of your choice to a group of approximately 20 Year 3 children. The story itself should last between 5 and 10 minutes, allowing for 5 minutes discussion time." Has anyone got any ideas which story I could read? Something with a moral? Are picture books too young for Year 3? I think with this kind of time frame, it's really all you can do. You can't read a Horrid Henry story, for example, in 5-10 mins. It doesn't say that I have to teach with it, just discuss. I have one idea - Something Else by Kathryn Cave. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Something-Else-Picture-Puffin-Kat... This is a simple story about a creature called Something Else who is excluded from his neighbour's activities because he behaves and looks different. But then when an even stranger creature tries to make friends with Something Else, he doesn't want to know, until he sees himself in the mirror. Is this too boring/simple for Year 3? I've only taught Year 1, Year 2 and Year 5. It would take about 5-10 mins to read. Any other ideas?? Please!! I'm in full panic mode. Do you think they expect a mini lesson even if they haven't said? I don't think it needs a LO.
