    Hello
    I have an interview on the 10th January and was told by the Uni on Thursday that I need to do a lesson and subject plan for a year 3 class and I can choose the subject. They said I need to plan a 5 minute introduction task for a new topic however I am struggling to know what to do.

    Please someone help!!!

    Well first of all good luck!
    We had to teach a 5 minute lesson but only in very small groups, there was only 4 of us in my group, after that we had our individual interviews and then that was it.
    Tip: make sure your lesson is engaging and you definitely know how you would carry on to teach it and also make sure you know about a current news story on education as that is a question in the interview

    Sadly I have just heard back and I have not been offered a place but when I've questioned it it was due to me not knowing a news story and not linking the lesson I taught to other subjects

    Good luck and be confident! Seriously the teaching part isn't as bad as you may think
