Study shows that bedtimes affect reading and writing ability

Late nights and different bedtime routines can affect children’s ability to read and write, new research has suggested.

The findings on sleep patterns and brain power come from a UK study of more than 11,000 seven-year-olds.

Youngsters who had no regular bedtime or who went to bed later than 9pm had lower scores for reading and maths.

Lack of sleep may disrupt natural body rhythms and impair how well the brain learns new information say the study authors.

They gathered data on the children at the ages of three, five and then seven to find out how well they were doing with their learning and see if this might be related to their sleeping habits.

By the age of seven, more than half the children had a regular bedtime of between 19:30 and 20:30.

What time do you go to bed and do you think getting to bed early helps you with your school work?

That may be true in some cases but not mine.
I turn 13 in sixteen days, I go to bed at roughly 9:30 – 10:30 ( depending how long I read for) and I am one of the smartest in my year! ( there’s about 80 kids in my year)

I go to bed at 8.30 but sometimes I can’t get to sleep until 9.30. When I go to sleep late even easy school work seems hard. But I’m still the best in my class! I’m 9.
