    Ahh right that was good then! Yes I applied for upper and lower primary so then if they give me an offer for both I can choose but I think I'd really like to do upper

    I brought a book in by Julia Donaldson and created some tasks out of it (such as match the image to the event in the story, a phonic game). I explained how I could use them in a early years settings. She even said to me in the end, that she liked how I was creative, by making my own resources. I received a offer virtually the next day. Try and be original!

    The one piece of advice I have for you, is to be up to date on current education issues!

    My individual interview was absolutely fine! There was head teacher from a school there and she was lovely and practically talked me through the whole thing! Yeh educational issues is a good thing to know about. But more than one because my friend got asked about a different one! And I would always ask a question at the end!
    And it is my firm choice!

    When I went to my interview, people taught a wide range of things from card tricks, phonics, French, math games and even literacy games hope this helps
