Giveaway (Collaborative Post)¦ Whether it’s GCSEs, A Levels or SATs, end of year exams are always stressful for children. It’s important to make sure that they get enough sleep, food and drink in the run up to exams. Try to make sure they don’t study so much that they burn themselves either. Gently remind them that frequent breaks are healthy and actually help the brain to retain more. Perhaps you could buy treats for them to snack on for a boost in these breaks. Another little boost could be some new stationery!
At the start of the school year, I used to love going stationery shopping! It was so fun selecting my pencil case, choosing a new fountain pen and selecting other bits and bobs. There’s just something about it I’ve always liked, which probably helps to explain the abundance of notepads on my bookshelf.
I used to enjoy having new pens or new other pieces of stationery when it came to exams too. It just gave me a little boost of happiness. Of course, this can be very helpful in a stressful situation! It’s funny how something so simple can help to spur you on.
