Screen Free Time

We all need time to unplug. While we all recognize the numerous benefits of mobile devices for children to learn at the moment, it’s equally important to remember the importance of screen-free time. Research has found that too much screen time can have a negative impact on children, affecting their sleep and eating habits, among other things. We would like children to have time to play and relax using other methods. Children need time to be able to explore their physical world, build their curiosity, and expand their imaginations. Therefore, as a school we are asking that you take an afternoon a week as screen-free time.

Click here are some ideas for you to use during this time.

If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to share with us please don't hesitate to email yearfour@moonsmoat.worcs.sch.uk and we will get back to you as quickly as we can.
