Summer vacation has altered children’s routines, according to more than half of instructors.

According to studies, six out of ten instructors are concerned about returning to school because the summer vacation has altered children’s routines. According to a study of 1,000 instructors, some children would be affected by a lack of sleep and a lack of food during the summer holiday.

One-third of students believe it will take a full week for them to get back into the swing of things, and the same percentage believe they will need to make up for lost time due to the holidays.

Breakfast clubs give the necessary fuel for youngsters to concentrate and re-establish a routine.

Kelloggs is testing a “Back to School Breakfast Club” to help with the adjustment.

After the holidays, the pilot will allow schools to serve breakfast to all students in the hopes that students will be more prepared to learn and settle down for the school day.

Following the trials in Derby, Ebbw Vale, Wales, Bolton, Stockport, and London, the cereal giant hopes to provide this to other schools.

“With all of the disruption that has occurred in children’s lives and learning this year, this is a great initiative by Kellogg’s, which will demonstrate the value of children not being hungry before the start of the school day, helping them to concentrate more easily and enjoy learning,” said Peter Cansell, a member of the National Association of Primary Education Council.

“Teachers frequently mention how much more peaceful youngsters are when they have had a good breakfast and the breakfast club environment provides them a flying start to the day.”

When asked what influences student behavior during the holidays, 67 percent responded a lack of discipline, followed by a lack of sleep (49 percent), and not eating enough (22 percent).

A quarter of instructors polled indicated they lost an average of over an hour of education every day in the first week back owing to classes not being ready to study.

The pandemic’s consequences are still being felt, with nearly a third (31%) of instructors reporting increased sleep deprivation since the outbreak began.
