Gifted and Talented

 

What a fantastic start our year 5 and 6 Star Gazers have made! They are certainly reaching for the stars! Every week the Star Gazers are given opportunities to challenge themselves through a different 'diet' to their usual lessons. We read, write, we discuss, we think mathematically and we help each other to do the best that we can in all these disciplines. So far we have studied Shakespeare, algebra, angles, WW1 and 19th century poetry to name just a few things.
 
We now have an exciting partnership with Huntingdon Library, which means that we can go to use the facilities at the library once every month. The Star Gazers are able to access a wealth of online research material, as well as have access to all the books and the upstairs study area. We have some exciting sessions planned. Our next visits will be on the 20th and 21st of November.
 
Each session, we research 'words of the week' using school ipads. These unfamiliar words are challenging and can come from the children's reading, from a text that we study, or anywhere we hear something new that we don't understand! We would love you to contribute some words for us to research definitions and use.
 
Each week the Star Gazers receive some homework; maths, writing, research or reading. We hope that they will discuss their work with you and that you will get involved in the challenge!
 
We will keep you posted with any more Star Gazers news.
