Luton schools test exercise routine to boost learning

A routine of exercises developed by an academic who had to re-learn how to read has improved pupils' reading, writing and arithmetic.

The 15-minute programme developed by Dr Elizabeth McClelland uses physical activity to boost concentration, attention and self-control.

Dr McClelland lost the ability to read after a virus 15 years ago. Simple eye exercises finally restored her ability and now her programmes are being trialled in primary schools across Luton.
