Poor Sleep Affects Learning
Our Teaching Packs contain everything you need for an inspiring, interactive lesson on the importance of good sleep.
Sleep deprivation is a serious issue and research shows it’s becoming ever more prevalent. Children nowadays get far less sleep than even 30 years ago and it’s having a profoundly negative impact on growth, learning and development.
We all know what it’s like to feel deprived of sleep- groggy, tired and merely functioning is difficult. For children, it’s an even bigger issue as it impacts massively on their development. Sleep affects memory, concentration, social skills, attention, decision-making, creativity and all of our body functions from our emotions right down to our weight.
Children need on average ten hours sleep every night: if you’ve got children that are particularly disruptive in your class, the chances are they aren’t getting enough sleep.
