1. Eat a good breakfast – you need fuel to keep going!

2. Arrive at school on time – five or ten minutes before 9 o’clock is best because then you have time to catch up with your friends before the school day starts.

3. Be organised – make sure you have all you need for the day ahead.

4. Pay attention to the teacher – if you don’t you won’t know what to do!

5. Ask for help when you need it – don't feel you have to struggle. The teacher is there to help you.

6. Be willing to try new ways of doing things and to work with different children – you will not only develop new skills but you will learn from each other.

7. Do your homework early in the evening – make sure you have a quiet place to work.

8. DON’T spend all your free time using the X-box, iPad etc. – get out in the fresh air, run around, ride your bike. Exercise stimulates brain cells!

9. Switch of all electronic devices at least one hour before bedtime – play a board game, read a book or maybe even just talk to your family!

10. Get a good night’s sleep – 9- 10 hours at least. Wake up feeling well rested and start at number 1 again!
