Hey!
So I had to do this last week for an interview, and basically I took a 'magic wand'. Take something that you think is important for a teacher to have, and how they can use it in a classroom/through their job as a teacher. Someone else took a glue stick, a photo of children and explained that every child is different.
Honestly it can be anything, just link it to why you want to be a teacher.
You need to ask yourself the question: "Why do I want to be a teacher", and the first thing that comes to mind, try find an item that represents that.
Hope it goes well!
P.S. where are you applying for?

Not sure about item, maybe you could get some things together for what you see as a lesson you would want to teach them? For Y1 I did the Wright brothers and got the kids to make different paper aeroplane designs to test them out. Bring some random objects, I put them on the playground and told the kids to plan a good map of them so aliens that dropped them could find them in the dark when they came back. Cut out countries, getting children to write out facts on them to then all get joined up as a jigsaw at the end. Buzz is all about creative, active work in primary, so make it clear you're all for that. That's what I'd do anyway.

Hello!
Good luck with all of your interviews!

I would interpret this as something that represents you as a teacher, or something that shows your motivation to teach! For example, a plant might represent nurturing and helping a child to grow! Or something more personal to your journey: for example, if a PE teacher inspired you to become a teacher, you might make a miniature football and goal. This represents both PE and helping children to score or achieve their goals!
I hope these examples help get you on the right track.

Just remember they want to know more about you and your journey, they don't want to trip you up! So as long as you can explain why and show your passion, you will be great!
