The Importance of Sleep

Hello bloggers

In school we watched a video on sleep. It was really informative and here is what I learnt.

Sleep is extremely important, we need sleep to recharge our body ready for the next day. I believe that kids aged 11-12 need  10- 11 hours of sleep on a weekday and 9-10 hours on a weekend or a holiday. If we don’t have enough sleep it will affect concentration, memory and even learning.

When we try to go asleep our body releases a chemical called Melatonin and it makes us sleepy. This is a serious issue that everyone needs to know about to get better grades in school. The brain releases the chemical called Meletonin from the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus in your brain which acts like a clock but in your brain. It uses  the information from your sensors (eyes and ears) to tell if it is night or day. When you use technology of any kind before you go to bed the meletonin doesn’t work as well.

This is why shutting down or turning off any device an hour before you go to sleep is a fantastic idea and I am going to do that.

This is the link to the video that we watched in class.


So what do you do before you go asleep?

St Lukes Twilight Sports

Hello bloggers,

On Monday the 29-2-16 St Lukes had our Twilight sports night. We all had a really good time and we all had so much fun.

The events we had for the years 4’s 5’s and 6’s were:

  1. 100 metres
  2. 200 metres
  3. 800 metres
  4. Shotput
  5. Long jump
  6. Discus
  7. 4×100 relay (grade 4, 5 and 6 only)

The extra events we had for the preps, year 1’s and 2’s were:

  1. Bean bag throw
  2. Mini hurdles
  3. Shuttle relay

The night wouldn’t have been so good if it wasn’t for all of our teachers and especially Miss Van Eyk and Mrs Reid. I also thank our principal Mrs Purcell for organising all of the students and getting times when we could practice. I also thank and congratulate all of the sports captains for green, red and blue because they made up all of the dances and taught it to the rest of their team. Thank you everyone who made the night so successful. Now the results are in…..



Good job everyone who participated and we all had fun.

What was your favourite bit about sports night?
