After 2 years of looking for a new post I finally have an interview. I got the letter yesterday for an interview on Wednesday (3 days prep!!) My school is currently on Easter holidays and I can't get hold of anyone to run ideas with. So I am hoping there is someone lovely out there who can help me! I have spent the day trawling google for ideas but to no avail. I need to teach a 30 minutes lesson on basic skills in year 3. I have absolutely no idea where to start. The focus is to be either Literacy or Numeracy. I have read the schools ofsted report and their biggest weaknesses were speaking and listening. I had thought about doing some sort of retelling acitivity but I have no idea. I haven't taught year 3 before and I am currently teaching year 5. I know that if I were teaching basic skills I would focus on sentence building but again don't know where to start. I am beginning to panic as I only have 2 days left to prepare this. The school is 200 miles from where I currently work (I moved away for a job and have since had a daughter and really need to move closer to my family) and as such has a very different cohort of children I currently teach. I am open to any ideas!
