19/27 Te Kura Tuatahi o Piopio 6 September 2019 Sleep!!! Some children have arrived at school this term very tired. Studies show that too little sleep can contribute to a poor ability to learn and may impact on a child's health and wellbeing. However, for many parents, ensuring their children get the right amount of sleep can be stressful. Poor sleep will have all sorts of adverse physiological, emotional and cognitive effects on children, including: Room 7 Camp Week 9 Sept Hearing & Vision checks Mon 9 Sept Maori Language Week 9-15 Sept Te Kuiti and Combined Schools Music Festival Thurs 19 Sept Student Led Conference Mon 23 Sept Sports Photos Tues 24 Sept Last day of term 3 Fri 27 Sept Learning is impaired. Susceptibility to serious illness Rise in blood pressure Eating too much, or eating the wrong foods Mood swings Aggressive, impatient behaviour Low self-esteem Without adequate sleep our focus and attention drifts, making it harder to receive information. When we are sleep-deprived our overworked neurons can no longer function to coordinate information properly and we lose our ability to access previously learned information. How much sleep do your primary-aged children need? hours per day. A healthy sleep routine with adequate time to wind-down at the end of the day is important to ensure your child gets the sleep their brain needs to develop and consolidate everything they ve learnt that day. 14 Aria Road, Piopio ph: mob: Our newsletter is available online: So, how can parents help? If you think your child needs more sleep, try making gradual changes to their sleeping habits. Small increments have been shown to be effective in changing sleep patterns. Be aware of the signs of fatigue in your children and speak to them if you re worried they are sleep deprived. Be clear about how much time your kids can spend on their computers and phones - a limit of no more than one to two hours a day is ideal. The light from LED screens delays the release of melatonin and makes it difficult for the brain to wind down. Enforce a no screen policy one hour before bedtime if your children are fighting sleep. Tip: play cards or board games instead of a screen or TV; or read a book!!! Take their phones out of their rooms when it comes to bedtime. No TV or computer screens in the bedroom. Limit soft drinks, fried food, sweets and caffeine (even tea) before bed. Regular exercise will help tire their bodies and get them ready for sleep. Reference Ngā mihi Pat Poland - Acting Principal A reminder to all parents to talk to their children about not getting into a car with someone they do not know, under any circumstances.
