Making cameo appearances on the trip are the Pisa Cathedral, the Old Cemetery, the Pisa Baptistery to name just a few.The product includes a document of about 20 interesting facts about the historic tourist attraction. The tour is also accompanied by a PDF file that describes what you are seeing based on the corresponding minutes in the video.

They are only included to help you organize and view the site better. The tour begins with a view of Europe from outer space. You are then zoomed in to the site’s location to see it from a variety of different viewpoints. The angles are chosen so the students can get a good idea of the structure’s location, as well as, its physical relationship to the other landmarks in its vicinity. Finally, you are taken back out to a long shot of Europe.To watch, all you have to do is click on the file, Google Earth will open and you will be taken on a short trip to the World Heritage site.

These presentations are a great way to get the students talking in the classroom. They can discuss the dresses and toys and guess what the different household objects were used for.

Interview question & answer bank - PGCE

Interview question & answer bank - PGCE

I prepared this document last year when I had my interview for primary PGCE at Nottm Trent Uni. It was then checked by a careers advisor after I had finished. I used these ideas to answer questions I was asked at interview, and gained a place on the course. They are in written format rather than bullet-point, because I believe they should be used as a guide ONLY and not used word-for-word so that you sound like a textbook! Hope this helps!
