  3. Look at the CBBC Newsround website and watch their video.
  4. Watch the youtube video.
  5. Log into Purple Mash, look at your ToDos for today and look for the Homework Debate task. Write 3 points for each side: Homework should be banned and Homework should not be banned. Write in full sentences and use subordinate conjunctions.
  6. Save it on Purple Mash.
  7. Complete your handwriting task.

Now watch the video and read the debate on Newsround: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/38383428

    Should we ban homework or not:

    For
    – Homework is important part of school development.
    – It helps us catch up with part of the lesson that we could finish of in the class.
    – It’s helps us improve our spellings and gain more knowledge about the subject we are learning in class.
    – Allows parent to be involved in the child’s education and also see what their learning in school.

    Against
    – There is no government study that show doing homework improve standards.
    – Banning homework means children will have time to play with friends and family.
    – Allows the children to have more family time together.
    – Children need time away from education to do more after school activities, and not spend doing homework late into the night.

    I have completed my handwriting in my homework book.

      of course children should do homework! it keeps their brain nice and healthy and keeps tyem intellegent!
      I think they should do homework because if their not doing homework, they will just play on video games all day!
      children should not have to do homework!
      they should be able to play games!
      They hav little brains! they OBVIOUSLY cant remember a single THING!! Do not push their brains and make them do homework school is bad enough!😤
      ( i do not think school is bad enough i just made that up :/)
      they should do homework because well, if its the hollidays, then when they go back to school they wont remember anything they learnt but if they do homework when they go back they will know the objective and even MORE!!!
      this will bore kids to death and they will easly get side – trackted. i personaly do not think its a good idea for homework because of this.
