Ensuring Early Years children are tucked up at a reasonable time can be tricky – but it’s well worth the effort. A recent study carried out by the Ohio State University College of Public Health discovered that pre-schoolers that are consistently in bed by 8pm are less likely to become obese teenagers than those who drop off later in the evening; indeed, bedtimes post 9pm seem to double the risk of obesity.

Is there too much emphasis placed in the wrong areas when it comes to PE in schools, especially Early Years? I want to make, what I believe, is a very important point. In Early Years, we know children can take a while to get changed. Let’s say on average it takes up to 10 minutes for children to get changed at the start and end of a lesson, therefore 20 minutes in total. If they then have two PE lessons a week, then that’s 40 minutes a week, across 39 weeks of the year, adds up to 1560 minutes. Therefore, 1560 minutes is the equivalent to thirty-five, 45 minute lessons of getting changed! Which is astonishing and quite shocking.
