Interview

Hi!

I have an interview for a KS2 position. It involves a 30 minute lesson observation.

"You can select the curriculum focus and context of your lesson"

I am thinking of a sort of problem solving activity where the children have to identify the number of squares on a 8x8 chessboard. Of course they will all give the answer 64 and then I would possibly demonstrate how I can see other sized squares and let them explore.

It will involve them using their times tables knowledge to count squares whilst others may just count so I believe it is accessible to all. But I'm worried its either too difficult or isn't going to meet the criteria.

Any advice would be great.

I have linked the lesson idea below
