I have noticed more recently there has been more and more on my facebook timeline of my friends discussing their children’s education, I have also seen viral videos and articles where schools have thought about alternative ways of helping children to achieve, from outside schooling in a forest to swapping detentions for meditation.
1.Mindfulness in Class
Mindfulness is so underrated in schools and yet the benefits it can bring are so astronomical it is ridiculous. More positivity, more self worth, less power struggle, less anxiety, more productivity, less anger. The list is endless. Could you imagine if even an hour a week in schools it was mandatory to have a class of deep breathing and spiritual awakening. To know and believe within yourself that you can do anything you want when you put your mind to it. The adults of tomorrow would be amazing people.
2. Homework with meaning.
Stargazing, going for a walk and doing a leaf rubbing. How about for an older child, they have so many books to read and things to remember sometimes they need a little reminder to take care of themselves and appreciate their surroundings. It’s often hard with such high needs from the education to warrant a none curriculum work but it is taking the time to appreciate what you have and how much you want to improve that will guarantee a much more calm and more willing child that wants to learn.
3. In Class Quizzes
We have all been in that classroom when we are told there’s going to be a quiz, there’s a ‘yay’ no matter what age. All children can be successful at school, we all learn in different ways but the most successful way in which children learn is by having fun and Educational Quizzes understand this with quizzes written by teachers for GCSE, kS3, 11-Plus, KS2 And even KS1 quizzes! The fact that schools get a dramatic discount for using the site is an even bigger plus and should mean they will be even more interested in getting involved and using alternative ways to aid with learning.
4. Extra Curricular Activities
An extracurricular activity can be almost anything that isn’t required by the educational board. However these activities are important for your children for examples of when they are applying for Colleges or writing their CV’s because these activities help develop to develop their talents, interests, and passions. They can also teach practical skills like time management. It would be brilliant If you child’s school could perhaps offer something that’s community spirited perhaps a trip to an old people’s home or Carol Singing with a church,
