Now that they have stopped swimming lessons, they usually don't use more than about £20, in which case we put the remaining money into the metaphorical pot towards their school trips.

Yes, each child has a budget of £25 per week (term-time). They all understand this and have a say in deciding where the money goes.

The other three all have individual lessons in various musical instruments, but DS2 only does chess club (free), music school (subsidised by county music service) and Scouts, so he has some left over.

ThreeBeeOneGee - you have an activities budget?!

We were given the information by the Inclusion Manager at his school.

I guess any child could go, but they are geared towards the very able.

thanks. how did you get to know about it? Can anyone go?

DS2 went to one in March. He really enjoyed it and we have booked for him to go to another in July.

Although it's not cheap, he hardly does any activities outside school, so we have enough left over in his activities budget to pay for one of these each term.

What he liked about it was it was that 'thinking outside the box' was encouraged, and his creativity in Mathematics had free rein.

does anyone know anything about these?

I've had a letter about masterclasses in my area.

DS is top of the class and I suppose figures in the "gifted" range by virtue of that.
