All was going well until I was asked <u>" What are your thoughs on the recent developments in the teaching of Phonics?" </u> Or it was something like that...you know how you listen to these questions but just don't HEAR them. Anyway I said something about there being many options...choosing what works well for you class....may need to be adapted depending on the class....taking elements which work well and appling them to your teaching.....blah blah blah....... Threw in something about the new governement. It was verging on waffle! Everything else went well and the observation went really good however, 3 experienced teachers were passed over for an NQT So, what SHOULD I have said? PS - This was for a temp Reception post.
