Going To Sleep in the Eleven Plus

Will the old saying 

`Early to bed, Early to rise,
Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise,’

apply to progress in the eleven plus?

 Larry Ferlazzo has gathered a collection of thoughts and ideas on sleep from a variety of web sites. 

Could some of our eleven plus children do better on papers and exercises - and in the examination if they had more sleep?

Perhaps some parents may be interested in maintaining a little diary - looking at the relationship between sleep and academic success?

My book by Webb on `Sleep: An Experimental Approach' (1968) looked at sleep in a variety of ways. You can even get a copy of this book on Amazon! I sometimes used to wonder if Wilse B. Webb did not have a wonderful life's work - just watching people sleep!

`Early to bed, Early to rise,
Helps an Eleven Plus child do well.’
