Gifted and Talented

Ms Caldwell asked the teachers which children in their class are particularly talented in English (reading, writing and drama), Maths, Science, P.E., Geography, ICT, Music, Art/Design Technology, Modern Foreign Languages and Forest School.  She then spoke to a few of the children to find out how they became so good at what they do and what helped them.  Here are a few quotes!
At the moment I'm reading 'Derek the sheep'. In our reading groups at school I get to show how good I am.  Lotta
I like reading non-fiction books about how things work.  I like reading in
my head. Daisy
