Definition The Government defines gifted and talented learners as; Children and young people with one or more abilities developed to a level significantly ahead of their year group (or with the potential to develop their abilities). Gifted - is described as learners who have the ability to excel academically in one or more subjects such as English, Science, History, drama, technology, etc; Talented - is described as learners who have the ability to excel in practical skills such as sport, leadership, artistic performance, or in an area of vocational skill.

Some interesting things about learning The brain has an amazing capacity to learn. We use around 5 percent of our brainpower – this means we waste 95 percent. The brain needs fuel! Oxygen, water, protein and rest are required for the brain to function efficiently.
The maximum time for which children can concentrate is approximately two minutes in excess of their chronological age in minutes. Even adults cannot concentrate for longer then 20-25 minutes. People learn in different ways: some will prefer to see information (visual learners), some will learn more effectively if they hear (auditory learners), while others will learn best by doing – touching, feeling, making (kinaesthetic learners).
Learning is greatly enhanced when the whole brain is engaged. People remember context much better than they remember content. Recall is dramatically improved when information is regularly reviewed. Without review, information is forgotten almost immediately. People learn best when they want to learn. Motivation is therefore very important to effective learning.
