I watched the news that an elementary school in Shizuoka prefecture starts 5th period before lunch. This is revolutionary because in my days I had the 5th period after lunch. The purpose is, they says, that by adopting 5-period system in the morning they have extra 25 minutes, which can be used for supplemental study or club activities. And also finishing 5 periods in the morning when students can keep concentration is thought to lead to improved learning efficiency. It is true that this policy also has a disadvantage like less break time, but in total this will bring favorable influences for students.
