Me again! I have been thinking about your post, and it reminded me of a child I taught, who was well ahead when she hit my class (Y2). I tried my best to stretch her, but it was so hard, when she could read and write as well as a Y5 child. She was clearly bored to tears by all the normal lessons, so ended up just doing her own 'project' on the computer. (She was able to research, take notes and type up reports.) Eventually, the parents decided to withdraw her from the state system and home educate. Of course, this caused a huge uproar in the school (money lost!!! All my fault!!) and much mumbling about 'what about the social skills? What about the interaction with other kids?'. But, the parents joined a Home Ed group, who arranged loads of meet ups, she was still in the local Brownies and so on, she still had the same pals round to play, it was just a different way of learning for her. (Naturally, she got a bursary to go to a private school for secondary education!) Just want to alert you to the alternatives. State school is not for everyone.
