The rationale behind these Bright Sparks projects is to cater for multiple intelligences and differentiated abilities within the classroom. There is a choice of eight different projects at three different levels, so while the same projects feature on all three levels, there are different expectations depending on the ability of the pupils. The eight projects cover all areas of the curriculum and encourage a variety of oral, visual, aural, creative and problem solving skills. Pupils are usually given one week to complete the project and then they present it to the class.
