  1. My apologies for no 'dear', I just wanted to cut to the chase. I want to thank you for providing such excellent advice on this forum. I'm happy to say that after around 15 applications I have finally been shortlisted and have an interview in two weeks. It is the one job I desperately want and after a one-to-one visit with the headteacher I was given such a great insight into the school and what I/it can offer. I have to teach a 30 minute Maths investigation on any area of maths I like to around 28 (!) Y3/4 children. I haven't taught in this year group before nor with so many children either so I'm up for the challenge. Your advice has been smashing and I've followed it word-for-word.

    If anyone has any advice on what kind of problem-solving lesson would be suitable for a large class of Y3/4 do send some ideas my way...

    Well done for getting that interview! So the school has learnt about you from your application and likes the sound of you - that's great.
    Do read the Interview clickables now for the next stage of advice. And the thread about the lesson

    Sorry, I'm no primary specialist, and of i were, I'd be a little wary about suggesting anything. It could be seen by another applicant . . . read the Horror Story in here:
