Oh that's a shame Karen.

Sorry but I did have to have a giggle at a French teacher who doesn't speak French. I wonder what she is teaching them?

Euro 2008, seems it is the teacher that is more interested than the children.
I remember my niece going into the school hall, and watching football,on TV and it was supposed to be their Sports lesson.
It was the man teacher that wanted to see it, and this was in the 1980's .
Pity you cant get private tuition for French for your daughter, being as she has done so well, and put the bill into the Education Authorities.
But what a laugh, French teacher that cannot speak French.

Are you sure the person in the class IS a teacher or she what they now call "a cover supervisor"?

probably not a teacher Claire. So daughter was supposed to go up 1 level this year but by Easter she had gone up 3 levels and they want to put her in the top set.....hopefully it wont go pear shaped,
