There are some basics that make an enormous difference to a child’s learning in the classroom.
Getting 10 – 12 hours sleep a night. Most of our children will need closer to 12.
Eating a quality breakfast, ideally high in protein.
Bringing a healthy lunch to school, including brain food for the classroom.
Bringing a drink bottle to school so they can drink water regularly.
Dressing appropriately so they are not too hot or cold.
Not watching TV or playing computer games for at least an hour before sleeping.
Marshall Laing Primary School has several bring your own device (BYOD) classrooms in Y3 – 6. This makes internet security an important consideration for teachers, students and their families.
