Welcome to my blog.
Bonjour! Güten Tag!
This week, Year 11 students have been undertaking their modern foreign languages speaking exams. It has been fantastic to hear so many students speaking fluently in French or German.
On Wednesday, 30 Year 9 and 10 pupils took part in an Oracy workshop with Talk the Talk UK.
Students’ delivered speeches that reinforced our message of “Stand Up, Speak Out and keep everyone safe”. Speaking to an audience is a real challenge, particularly when your audience is full of your peers! The students involved kept cool and calm and delivered excellent, interesting speeches with confidence. Very well done.
Next week, GCSE and A-Level exams get underway. Good luck to all students sitting their exams.
Saturday 11th May, marks the anniversary of the Bradford City Fire in which 56 spectators, including two Beckfoot Thornton students, lost their lives.
Our thoughts as always are with the families involved in the disaster.
