Welcome Kate, our SCITT student!

Welcome Kate, our new SCITT student.  Kate will be working with lots of groups from across the key stages, helping them develop their language skills.  Kate has an interesting background having worked as a volunteer in Latin America for a number of years. - Rehearsing your presentations! is a great website that allows you to paste in text that you have copied and will present it as a teleprompter like the newsreaders on the television use.  It is an excellent tool to help you rehearse your presentations, and allows you to focus on the timing and your intonation.

Bienvenue Manon!

Welcome Manon.  Our new French assistant who comes from near Toulouse, in the south of France.
Manon's parents are Dutch, so Manon speaks fluent Dutch too! 
Like Cristina, Manon will be working with small groups of students helping them improve their fluency and confidence in speaking French.
