London is poised on the brink of World War 11. Timid, scrawny Willie Beech -- the abused child of a single mother -- is evacuated to the English countryside. At first, he is terrified of everything, of the country sounds and sights, even of Mr. Tom, the gruff, kindly old man who has taken him in. But gradually Willie forgets the hate and despair of his past. He learns to love a world he never knew existed, a world of friendship and affection in which harsh words and daily beatings have no place. Then a telegram comes. Willie must return to his mother in London. When weeks pass by with no word from Willie, Mr. Tom sets out for London to look for the young boy he has come to love as a son.

Effective Resources for Able and Talented Children has been written to meet the massive demand for practical resources designed to stimulate and inspire more able pupils. It can be seen as a practical sequel to Barry Teare's Effective Provision for Able and Talented Children (published by Network Educational Press), but also stands entirely alone as the activities can be used quite independently. What the Book Covers: Contains a wealth of attractive and exciting photocopiable resources for able and talented pupils in both the primary and secondary sectors; Provides activities designed to inspire, motivate, challenge and stretch able children, encouraging them to enjoy their true potential; Begins with sections designed to help teachers build provision for able and talented children into the curriculum; The large bank of resources is organised according to areas of the National Curriculum and Scottish 5 - 14 Guidelines, such as English, Science and Mathematics, each preceded by a commentary outlining key principles and giving general guidance for teachers.
