    Hi, I have an interview on tuesday for primary education at Northampton university and i have been asked to prepare a 'topic to teach' to 5/6 other applicants and to treat them as if they are in year three.
    My passion is to specialise in maths so i need to choose a topic that is related to maths... i was considering teaching fractions.
    The problems are i dont know if this would be an exciting topic and im confused on the level of fractions to teach because different websites say different things.
    After the teaching part i have to give a speech on how i would continue to teach my subject for five minutes and then have a one to one interview.

    I am so nervous and was just wondering if anyone could give me any advice or tips? How am i meant to speak for five minutes about how i would continue teaching fractions and what will they ask in the one to one interview?

    ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED!

    thanks in advance!!

    OMG i got the exact same thing,... but my interview is on wednesday and im absolutely dreading it as this will be my first one:confused:

    uhm... you could maybe turn it into a fun game because it is year 3 students....
    So like use smarties or coins to teach them how to do simple fractions maybe?


    I am planning to do english- and like teach them how to plan and stuff


    Btw.... r u bringing a parent with you?
    and im also dreading the one-to- one interview the most, cause im nervous about messing up :/
