Gifted and Talented Programme 2016-17

We have now come to the end of our 16-week programme for Gifted and Talented children in Years 5 & 6. Since September we have welcomed over 70 children from 7 different schools on Friday afternoons for classes in Maths, English, Science and Spanish. These are just some of the exciting things the children have been up to in their lessons:

Maths – Treasure hunts on the field; murder mystery ‘coding’; card tricks and a visit to the University of Birmingham’s Lapworth Museum of Geology!

Science – Various lab-based experiments including looking for insects in leaf litter; dissecting owl pellets; investigating air resistance using dandelion parachutes; investigating whether woodlice prefer the light or dark and even making wormeries!

Spanish – Singing and learning about Hispanic cultural topics such as the Day of the Dead, making ‘Calaveras’ (Mexican skulls), learning the days of the week, months, colours, numbers, food etc. with lots of treats!

English – Word games, poetry and creative writing
