Hi, I am being made redundant but have interview next week for Early Years Practioner. I have been asked to plan a 10 min lesson with a small group of 3/4 year olds. Any theme, area of learning etc that i choose. How do i plan for children i have never met? Not sure where to start...thanks in advance x

maybe literacy or numeracy? read a short story and do a follow up? or the 'whatever next'? and all make a space rocket after. my nursery children love this story. or 'peace at last', and each child draw the things that kept him awake, or do it as a group on a large piece of paper. both stories are about 5 mins long and would allow 5 mins follow up

Choose something you are very familiar with, a song, nursery rhyme or short book. Ten minutes isn't very long at all. Make or take with you props the children can use and make sure there are plenty of opportunities for the activity to be interactive.

And make sure that at your interview, you mention how difficult it is to play for children you've never met for, because obviously good planning comes from knowing your children, what stages of development they are at and what they are interested in! That would score some brownie points!

 

Good luck - let us know how it goes!

Good advice above - I agree with Miriam, a story with props would be really good. Do you know how many children there will be? If so you could give them all something - I have photocopied loads of the fish and other things from the Rainbow Fish story and cut them out and laminated them and handed them out to the children. Then they have to hold their picture up when they see it in the story while you are reading it. It can help keep their attention.

 

Good luck!
