Individual presentation Watch
I took them outside and we looked at the sky and I asked them to come up with some adjectives to do with clouds and then we went and made a big spider diagram of their words and it gave them a good jumping off point to write their poems.
I'm just not sure if it is a bit.... lacking? Any ideas?!
Writing is one thing, but getting ideas is another. I really like your approach.
They also want to see you've had some experience in school - and haveing done something creative liek that should be seen well, and is probably a bit different. Also dont just talk about twhat you did (i.e. the standing outside), but what the pupils learnt from it, and how it enhanced their learning etc. They may also ask you a couple of questions after.
A good idea is to practise in front of a friend, and get them to ask any questions after, or record yourself doing the presentation, and listen back to it.
Good luck with the presentation. Only other advice i can offer is make sure you are up to speed with current issue s - through the tes, the bbc (click on news, then education), and teachers tv news (www.teachers.tv).
Good luck for the interviuew, eden.
Thanks for the reply :-) From your post it sounds like you had an interview there too? I'm a bit confused as in the official stuff it doesn't mention a maths test yet I was expecting one so am a bit lost! I think I'm going to keep preparing for a maths test just in case though!
