We are researchers at the University of York exploring how sleep helps children to learn. We are looking to recruit children between 4 and 6 years old with a range of language skills.
What will the project involve?
Your child will be asked to wear a small watch to measure their movements overnight, for seven nights. The watch is light and easy to wear. Over the course of this week a researcher will visit you three times whenever is convenient for you. During these sessions the researcher will teach your child some new words and measure their learning. The researcher will also carry out a set of short, fun assessments of cognitive ability with your child.
You will be asked to complete some questionnaires about your child’s communication skills and sleeping habits. Children will receive a gift and an Amazon voucher to thank them for taking part.

Who is the researcher?
Hello, my name is Madeleine Pownall and I am a PhD researcher in the School of Psychology at the University of Leeds. I am interested in how social mechanisms may account for differences in cognitive functioning, such as the memory task in this experiment. This work is supervised by Dr Russell Hutter and Professor Mark Conner, both at the University of Leeds. If you have any questions about this work or any of my PhD studies, please feel free to contact me on M.V.Pownall@leeds.ac.uk
Am I eligible to participate?
This work is interested in investigating memory function and beliefs about gender in women at various stages of motherhood. Please note that to be eligible to participate, you must be above 18 years old. The study is open to first-time pregnant women and women with a child less than 2 years old.
What will I be asked to do?
This online experiment, which will take approximately 10-15 minutes, can be completed in a time and place that is convenient to you. In the experiment, you will first answer a few demographic questions and then a personality scale. You will then be asked to complete two different variations of a memory task. This will involve showing you a list of 15 different words that will flash up on the screen. You will then be redirected to a survey page that will ask you to list as many of the items as you can remember. This task will be repeated twice. You will then be invited to complete an additional, more interactive memory task that will involve you viewing and repeating back different sequences of blocks flashing on the screen. Lastly, you will be asked to complete two scales that ask an array of questions related to your attitudes and beliefs.
The research takes around 10-15 minutes to complete in full and all participants will get entered into two £50 prize draws as a thank you.

Volunteer with Home-Start Leeds
Gain confidence; learn new skills supporting families across Leeds
Home-Start Leeds is a family support charity, supporting families In Leeds for over 30 years. In 2016-17 145 volunteers supported 198 families.
Our volunteers visit families in their homes, support them with difficulties they are facing such as isolation, mental health or substance misuse. In addition there may be children with additional needs, multiple births or be part of a blended family.
Our volunteers are there to offer emotional and practical support in a restorative way working ‘with’ a family. Volunteers are someone to talk to and who offer support and options when needed. Practical support might include supporting a family to access a children centre, going to the park, encouraging play or helping after school. Our volunteers support families once a week for approximately 3 hours a week for as long as the family needs support – typically a year to 18 months. Volunteering with Home-Start Leeds is flexible and can take place in the daytime, evening or weekend.
All our volunteers attend a 45 hours preparation. We offer preparation courses in the daytime during school hours or in the evening. Volunteers are supported by one of our highly trained co-ordinators throughout their time volunteering with us. Co-ordinators offer on-going support to volunteers making sure they receive all the help they need when supporting a family.
Our volunteers are parents or have parenting experience and understand the struggles of having a family. We offer our own on-going free programme of learning opportunities, the chance to undertake Level 1/2/3 qualifications when funding is available and work experience opportunities.
A Volunteer’s Story

Volunteering with Home-Start is a wonderful opportunity and makes a big difference to families’ lives” During her volunteering Michelle has successfully completed an Level 4 qualification on “Working with Parents”
