You can help your child's learning every day, by supporting and encouraging them and being excited by their learning. Here are some ideas to keep them developing their literacy and numeracy skills at home. Have a look at the year group for your child and have fun.
Gifted or talented children can be found in any family and in almost any classroom. Most gifted children need support to reach their full potential.
