Living and Learning: I know the importance of sleep

Friday 28 April 2023

In this week’s L&L session, we learnt about the importance of sleep.

It’s recommended that at 10 years of age, you get 10 hours of sleep per night to reap the following benefits:

1. Concentration – increased concentration on tasks throughout the day

2. Health – you’ll feel fuller thus making it easier to maintain a healthy weight

3. Decision making – more decisive decision making

4. Memory – short term memory is transferred into long term memory

5. Mood – a better mood and less irritable

6. Repair – body’s muscles, organs and tissues are repaired during sleep

Well done, Gurvar, who received this week’s L&L certificate!

Help at home: establish a clear, structured nighttime routine with your child to ensure they get the recommended amount of sleep each night. This will help their social, mental, emotional and physical health!
