    I am slightly unsure on what the interviews consist of for primary education, especially at York St Johns as part of their interviews there I a group task. I am wondering if anyone can tell me what this involves and how to prepare for it?

    Aw sure you'll do great wouldn't worry at all! Haven't heard from them yet so panicking abit haha, but we did a group task was quite informal I actually enjoyed it! I'd say talk about one specific thing about your book or object like literacy for example but then say how it could be used in every other area of learning too so that you show you have a wide understanding 🙈 just saying that as I found the presentations that did that were loads better! I did a bubble map with how my book could be used in every single aspect of curriculum (lessons plans are great for this on TES) questions I got asked were things like how could you adapt this to lower or higher key stages so not as bad as I thought! Then the individual interview lasted for 30 mins, was informal too and made you feel really comfortable so sure you won't be too nervous! Got questions like how do you handle your own stress, what's the most stressful thing about teaching, sum up what you have learnt from your work experience in one sentence and why do you want to be a primary school teacher! Nothing you can't prepare for really! Good luck ☺️☺️ And if you have any more questions feel free to ask haha (sorry for such a long reply) Xxx
