    Hello :)

    I have been invited to interview for a teaching assistant position (interview is next week). For the interview task I have been asked to share a story of my choice with a group of Key Stage One children for 20 minutes. I just wondered if anyone has any good story recommendations and also any useful tips!

    Thanks in advance

    Good advice, cys2017. You could also think of a story where you could take a 'prop' with you to help introduce it and catch their interest and imagination - if you were doing 'Dogger', you could have a toy dog; a box of crayons for 'The Day the Crayons Quit' (that's a brilliant one). I'm sure you can think of lots more.
    Good luck with the interview.

    I think you should chose a story that has some moral or motivational lesson in it.
