• An overview of a resource box that could be used by a teacher to meet one of the intended learning outcomes below (taken from the National Curriculum for England & Wales, Key Stage 2).

In creating the box keep in mind different learning styles, tangible and virtual resources and supporting visual and written material. During interview you will be asked to discuss your ideas.
o Literacy: Pupils should be taught to write narratives about personal experiences and those of others, write about real events and write for different purposes.
o Science: Pupils should be taught to use simple features to compare objects, materials and living things and, with help, decide how to sort and group them, observe changes over time, and, with guidance, they should begin to notice patterns and relationships.
o History: Pupils should understand the ‘Romanisation’ of Britain: the impact of technology, culture and beliefs, including early Christianity.
