Top tips from NACE on keeping children's brains in gear over the summer holidays

Do  your parents ask for ideas to keep their children’s brains in gear over the summer?

NACE have written a useful crib sheet of ideas for teachers to share.

Teachers are well aware that the summer holidays can cause not only a hiatus in children’s learning but in some cases even cause children to lose some of the skills acquired during the school year (the so-called ‘summer learning loss’).

On the positive side the long summer break can provide an opportunity to consolidate, strengthen children’s learning and even help them to make further progress.  This e-bulletin has a focus on how you and your pupils’ parents and carers can support children in keeping their minds as well as their bodies fit and active in the summer holidays – without of course forgetting that it should also be a time to enjoy the freedoms of being young.
