Key Stage 2: Everything new under the shade

We are reminded about the importance of sleep…There is improved security on shuttle buses with our new RFID card system…The pool has a new sun shade...and Fun Day is right around the corner!

The importance of catching Zzzzzzzs!

For many parents, getting their children to bed is a battle. The 21st century family is faced with many challenges that stand in the way of a good night’s sleep- games consoles, tablets, older siblings with later bedtimes. However, a good night’s sleep is one of the foundations of the healthy development and well-being of your children. Sleep allows the body to recuperate, helping set your child up for the demands of a normal day. A healthy sleep routine is essential to help your child face the school day with the required levels of energy and a brain that is ready to learn and acquire new information.

As teachers, we often find it very apparent when children arrive at school without enough sleep from the night before. From the obvious signs, such as yawning and the more extreme, falling asleep in class to more subtle signs such as being less attentive than normal, being more sensitive or snappy/grumpy.

As the table below shows, children do require more sleep than adults and it’s important to provide stability for your children in terms of established, regular bedtimes.

The following websites provide further information on the importance of sleep for children and barriers to sleep to be aware of.

Plain Sailing

As you walk into school, you will immediately notice our swimming pool has now been fitted with a new sail shade, which provides excellent protection from the sun for those around the edge of the pool as well as shading a large percentage of the pool at various points during the day.
