Had an inteview yesterday for position as Literacy Leader. I got the job and the interview panel were really impressed by my lesson. So I thought I’d share it on here in case anyone else is stuck for ideas.
The task was to teach a 30 minute lesson to a Year 6 class which would lead to quality writing, focusing on whole class teaching but showing in plan what the independent task would be. I used a short animation to focus on how to ‘show’ how a character is feeling (instead of ‘telling’ – “She was happy.”)
The animation was downloaded from here:

I’ve also converted the Smart Notebook file to a PowerPoint, for those of you without a Smart Board.
The children enjoyed the lesson, and were really engaged from the very start of the lesson. I tried out the lesson with my Year 5 class the previous day and they produced some great writing.
