What does it mean?

Just had letter from school inviting DD4 on a week in the summer for gifted and talented children.
Can't understand it at all. DD4 was home educated until this year (she is 12) when she demanded to go to school.
She was a long way behind (due to her being laid back and lazy and my methods - learning through play).
She's very good at singing though (can't shut her up). Absolutely confused, can anybody give me a brief introduction.
Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't worry TBH - sounds like a great opportunity, I don't see why you should question it. Even if she is behind on traditional measures, maybe the teacher can just see a 'spark' there and thinks she's got good academic potential? smile

Oh thanks, was worrying that she was bright and I hadn't really noticed or something. She loves school. I had hoped she would come home again but no chance. She didn't want to be alone with DD3 (aged 14 and severley autistic). I just did the same lessons with them all, when I home educated 4 of them together and she seemed to find it boring. Always slipping away to do arts and crafts or music.
