Sleep and the Eleven Plus

There is great excitement in the shires tonight. A mother has just re-invented a Sleep Learning.

She spent the afternoon going over percentages with her ten year child. At one stage both parties were in tears. There were hugs and kisses – and a general air of reconciliation developed – and emerged.

The much loved daughter went to bed – and mother sat beside her for an hour reading the notes they had developed on percentages.

“To find ten percent of a number, simply divide by ten.”

We understand that the daughter finally dropped off to sleep with her mother’s voice extolling the delights of percentages. A few minutes later the mother fell asleep in mid sentence – but continuing to read percentage rules to her daughter.

The mother is working on the theme that the brain keeps working - even when the body is asleep.
