BLC Able and Talented Co-ordinators start planning 2016-17 programme

Following a packed programme of events, organised within our cluster this year, the Able and Talented Co-ordinators from our primary schools met yesterday to start planning activities for our most able students next year. More visits to the Houses of Parliament with workshops and presentations back in school, visits to professional newsrooms to inspire young writers, partnering with our secondary schools on Science and DT masterclasses, Art using specialist teachers and exploring different media, Dance, Sports, Music and a Maths competition for KS1 are just some of the events we aim to plan and deliver together as a cluster next year. We also hope to set up a blog for pupils to be able to record their own experiences of the activities as the year progresses. Many thanks to the enthusiasm and commitment from the staff in this group.
