Ten minute activity with a group of year 3/4?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by treespirit, Feb 6, 2011.

  1. Hi, I am an NQT and this is my second interview. Does anyone have any ideas for a ten minute activity that I can do with the children? Just seems such a short time for it to even have a context. Should I be writing a plan for this? All I can think of is a drama ice breaker, 'the name game', whcih helps the chidlren express a part of their personality in word/sound/movement? Would this be a good choice?
    Eeek!
    Many thanks x

    Yes, you should always have a plan. They might not be interested in it, but no sense in not having it prepared anyway.

    How big is the group? Do you have any spec at all regarding subject/activity?

    I had a similar time frame with 15 yr 3's for my NQT interview and decided to make the LO To use adjectives and adverbs in a sentence. I prepared a selection of these words ready. I started the lesson by getting the children sat in a cirlce by giving the children a sentence to start them off, which they each had to add to with a sentence of their own to create a story. Then we went round again but this time they had to pass the bag round the circle and pick out a word to incorporate into their sentence. Then again with 2. At the end of each round I repeated the whole story really fast to make the kids laugh, it was fun! I got the job.
     
  5. No spec at all- "we would therefore like you to plan a ten minute activity which you feel will help them get to know you and demonstrate your ability to relate positively with chidlren". That's it. That is why I thoguht I would go for something more PSHE. What do you think?

    Yeah, the 'relate positively' seems fairly informal to me so something drama -ish sounds fine.
     
  7. How would I mention that I could assess the children? I have never had to assess children through PSHE/SEAL before. What do you think? Cheers muchly btw.
