Join hundreds of primary teachers in the TES Primary group. Find lesson ideas and inspiration, share best practice and get your questions answered by your peers. This is also the place for debate on the latest issues in primary teaching.
Please tell me that wasn't copied and pasted directly from something you submitted on your course.
As to roles, think nurse, social worker, optician, police officer, psychologist, parent, educator (nearly forgot that one), listener, eye-opener, and you won't be too far wrong.
Another tip - you MUST get into as many schools as possible to observe between now and then. Primary Education is vastly over-subscriber at the moment, and this is always the way during recessions. What will give you the edge is having more to say when asked why you want to teach than the terrible "I love working with children."
Because, trust me, some days you won't.
As to your 2 minutes on MFL, it might be interesting to find out how many languages are now spoken in the schools in your local area, even by 'British' passport holders - the fact that you had done this research will help you to stand out. (As, incidentally, will the fact that you asked a question on the TES primary forum - be sure to slip that into the interview somewhere!)

I am 100% agreed with you here... jesus christ who would think that is acceptable?
Not so much that but if one of her markers sees that online and can't verify it's her, she could be accidently done for plagiarism or someone else could copy it.
Welcome to the forum.
I will try and remain positive and suggest that you have two days to rewrite this, I would suggest you actually talk to a teacher about it and ask for some advice.
It seems that you may have just made up what you think teachers do and what teachers are like.
You could mention the need to have good communication with parents and carers, governors and the wider community.
Hahaha.. troll in the dungeon. I ALMOST fell for it. No-one is this dumb.
Rathen No-one is this dumb.
Sadly they are!
