    Ive been invited for interview and to deliver a 15 minute lesson to year 4 based on a book linked to the curriculum. Problem being all of my prior experience is in early years. Any ideas?

    Look at the national curriculum and what is expected to be taught in year 4. Pick something you like from that and then find a book that links to it.

    I’m currently in year 4 and we are doing demon dentist, I believe they did George’s marvellous medicine before. You could do a nice comparison of characters, maybe read them a chapter asking them to take notes as you read then do a little quiz giving them descriptions and then using their notes asking them what character do they relate, how did they know it was that character? or a searching activity as you read a chapter get them to put their hands up when they hear, e.g put your hands up when you hear a metaphor etc, you could even do that as a class bingo.

    Good luck!! Hope it goes well :)
