I’m sure you already know that sleep is important.
But did you know that sleep plays an important role in memory?
In 2006, a group of researchers wanted to investigate the effects of sleep on memory.
What these researchers discovered was that it is not only important to get a good night’s sleep before you learn new information, but also after you have learnt something new.
The quality and quantity of sleep impacts your memory.
If your child gets a good night’s sleep before going to school, they are more likely to concentrate and be capable of learning new things.
Also, if your child gets a good night’s sleep after learning new things, then their brain has the opportunity to consolidate the new information whilst they sleep.
