Hi everyone,
I have applied for the Primary PGCE at Coleraine. Has anyone else here applied for next year?
Also, does anyone have any tips about the storytelling interview? Maybe a previous student or someone who has applied before?

Hi everyone,

I also had the same date of the 10th of December. This is my second year applying so if i remember right, I did not hear back from them until the start of February. Don't know if that will be the case this year but fingers crossed we will all hear soon.

Hi Laura,

I am assuming you have to choose a relevant children's book and use as the base for your interview lesson.
I would say that bringing the story to life is really important. Think about how you might do this - through pictures, song, your expressions and characterisation when reading. Asking key questions as you move through the lesson too. How would your interest be held if you were being read to?
Think about how you will keep the pupils engaged.
This clip shows you how Rik Mayall uses characterisation, images and humour (people learn better when they are having fun) to hold his audience:

What is the rationale of your story? What are the key themes? What do you hope the children will learn? Key language skills, repeating a new word or words? Be able to write a story of their own, tell their learning buddy a story by using their imagination?

The very best of luck Laura

I submitted storytelling video on the 10th Decemeber too! Still heard nothing yet. I thought it might have been this month but maybe will be February instead. I'm sure it must take hours to watch nearly 500 five minute long videos! Good luck everybody. I hope we hear soon.
