Keep your little ones intellectually stimulated this summer break with these tips from Superior Minds.
The long periods of time off away from school this summer may lead your children to lose whatever valuable knowledge and skills they have acquired during the last school year.
So how do you keep you kid’s brain active over summer? Learn the 8 ways to keep your child’s mind active even during vacation, incorporating academic-based boot camp to keep your children on top of their learning this summer break.
1. Structure the day/week/months
Structuring the summer holidays is the last thing on anyone’s mind. Whilst having a break from routine can do you some good, establishing a schedule ensures you can use the time from summer break wisely. It also allows children to know what to expect from their summer break. Allocating your time better to set activities, days out, travelling etc. reduces distractions and boredom for your children.
2. Read a book to keep your mind engaged
Take a visit to the local library or bookshop with the children to encourage their reading. Allow them to immerse themselves into another world of books and enjoy learning them too! Try encouraging them to read their favourite collection
by giving them an incentive!
3. Take a class or join our Summer Camp!
Incorporating English, Maths and Science are key in our academic-based summer camp. All activities are learning based and we encourage a flexible approach to learning and understand that no two children are the same. With this approach, our students can reap the benefits of a fun, stimulating learning environment that encompasses a space for them to grow, learn, increase confidence and independence. We also have our Boot Camp for your Brain programme, a specific Maths and English programme, designed to use the summer to your advantage to fill in any knowledge gaps and keep your children on top of their learning throughout the summer break.

4. Write something
Encourage your children to keep a journal of their summer break which they can later look back on and reflect on the fun times they had!
5. Incorporate plenty of activities
Use your summer break to do lots of different activities such as visiting the beach, new places etc. that would usually have been time consuming to do during the school term. This can be a hobby or something new that you and your children may enjoy.
6. Be active
Be adventurous! Peel the children away from their computer games and go outdoors and explore. Have a family visit to the park with a picnic or explore a new environment. Simply, enjoy the great outdoors!

7. Keep your mind active through fun and games
Complete puzzles and play fun games to encourage learning through play. Card games and board games such as Scrabble or Monopoly can be incorporated into family time, making great opportunities to throw in some Maths that’s fun! Get involved with the children to encourage their mental stimulation. If card games and board games are not your thing, try your hand in different activities like cooking!
8. Set a bedtime
Whilst sleep may be the last thing on children’s minds this summer, establishing a bedtime will keep your little ones on a consistent schedule and will make sure they are getting enough rest. Little or a lack of sleep can have a negative impact on learning abilities causing children to become hyperactive and fidgety.
Whatever you choose to do this Summer, we hope you have a wonderful Summer break!
