    Hi

    I just thought I'd start this thread so that those of us with interviews for Schools Direct placements can share our experiences.

    I have recently been offered an interview for a schools direct placement through Sheffield Hallam university. This will be my first teacher training interview and I am absolutely dreading it! Mainly because I have to do a numeracy pre-entry test and I haven't studied maths in almost five years. Has anybody done an interview through with Sheffield Hallam? Could you give me some idea of what to expect?

    Thanks!

    Hi!
    Apologies if I shouldn't be writing this in here but I need some advice regarding a school direct interview.

    I have been asked to teach a 15 minute literacy lesson based on a book to 8 HA year 4's.
    I have chosen to have the children write a recipe for a potion based on George's Marvellous Medicine.
    Do you think this is a suitable task to use in the time frame?
    Also, would I benefit from having a cauldron/wooden spoon/potions to spark their imagination?

    I think that sounds like a really good idea, you could try and incorporate things like alliteration too.
