I was honoured to be asked to give a keynote presentation at the Able Gifted and Talented Conference, in Derby, today. Thank you to Christine Askew and her colleagues for organising a superb event!

“btw”, try the DCFS site for some advice about, and definitions of, Gifted and talented children.

There are some helpful pieces of information within the QCA Guidance

Young Gifted and Talented, The National Association for Gifted Children, G&T Wise, and the database of resources at the National Literacy Trust are just a few of the sites you may find useful.

Teachers TV have some great programmes about gifted and talented pupils HERE

    As promised I wanted to say thanks for a really inspiring day… so many ideas that I can’t wait to get back to school and share them with my colleagues. I’ve already began thinking about when to plan in the sessions using the ICT games that u showed us. I’m looking forward to seeing the children’s excitement and raising our boys writing achievement in school. Thank you once again, Tara.

    A great afternoon of work and inspiration. I really enjoyed it thanks Tim. I have also gone back to school and raved about all the good ideas i have picked up and have started on an interactive presentation already. The science coordinator loves the writing on powerpoint text boxes too!
