Stretching the literacy skills of more able and talented pupils

Through the prism of multiculturalism, Blaenavon Heritage VC Primary and its partners, Garnteg Primary, Victoria Village Primary, Cwmffrwdoer and Abersychan High School, have been stretching the literacy skills of their more able and talented learners. Year 6 pupils from the primaries and year 7 pupils from the high school have been looking at issues regarding identity, belonging and heritage.
