Hello and welcome to the Gifted and Talented section of the VLE. This section is intended to be used to promote learning in all areas of the curriculum based on the skills and competencies developed in Learning to Learn lessons. 

 

Learning to Learn encourages a 'Thinking School' but what does this mean for my child? Click here to find out more about multiple intelligences. And as for the maps... Wondering what a bubble map is, or a flow map? Click here for help with Thinking Maps

 

And what are these hats my child keeps mentioning? Is your child struggling with a particular mathematical concept, or really enjoying a piece of homework? Further resources, in the form of interactive games to support most curriculum areas, can be found at Topmarks on the link below. click here for educational games.

Year 7 students have just found out if they are on the Gifted and Talented (G&T) list and they are their families came to a partnership meeting on Tuesday 24th February.  Parents found out why their children have been placed on the list and what this means for them. Finally students received their YG&T packs and registered with the program so that they can access chat rooms, extra support and resources. Students also heard a little introduction to the extra support available in SEAL based PSHE sessions and an exciting Challenge day planned for 24th March 2009.

 

If you are on the G&T list why not have a look at http://www.ygt.dcsf.gov.uk/.

Gifted and talented students from year 8 and year 9 enjoyed a creative writing workshop at Lancaster University based on the theme of Harry Potter. Students who attended (on 11th February) included Cameron Falconer, Tayler Tunstead and James Harrison; Miss Smith also attended and is looking out for the next JK Rowling. We are hoping to have copies of the students work up and around school during the next term.

 

Year 7 Science students are following in the footsteps of students in Maths lessons by planning and taking parts of lessons. The aim of this scheme is to consolidate the learning of students, helping them to sequence their learning and challenge other students with high order questions in creative quizzes.

 

Teachers at Halton High school received some INSET training on G&T enrichment and extension activities on 23rd February with the aim of students being challenged in lessons through high order questions and lesson outcomes. To enhance your understanding and to apply some of the ideas at home further information can be gained at http://eduscapes.com/tap/topic69.htm.
