I have an interview on Monday for a teaching job. I have to teach 30 year1/2 pupils. Its a 30 mins literacy lesson on the theme of 'Christmas'
I have a few ideas but wondered if you'd let me know what you think
1. Write a letter to father Christmas
2. Add speech bubbles to pictures of the chrismas story (not totally sure what my LO would be here!)
3. a bit of a poem - I'd give the children a selection of chritmas decorations and they have to use them for a poem - e.g. on my tree I would put a shiny, round bauble
what do you think? or non of these?!!!
Update: I had the interview yesterday and we did the poem and I got the job!! Woop woop! Start after Christmas.

Firstly I'd start with my learning outcomes - what are you wanting the children to achieve in those thirty minutes. From that I would get my learning objectives and then decide on the activity. Dependent on your outcomes I think any of the above three coudl eb adapted as necessary.

30 minutes isn't a lot of time so I would avoid the letter.i like the sound of the poem. It would be easy to differentiate and I'm sure you could find a nice picture/photo online as a good starting point for your introduction.
