Homework for the holidays

During the holidays you are required to complete a persuasive piece of writing. Your topic is, ‘Should homework be done on the holidays.’ You can choose to argue against homework on the holidays or for homework on the holidays.

Remember to use lots of emotive words and structure your persuasive piece properly. You will need:

  • An introduction (hook in and your opinion)
  • Body (strong arguments that are well supported)
  • Conclusion (restate your opinion)

Your homework may be written as a comment under this post, make sure you check your work before publishing. You could also write it out on a piece of paper. It is up to you which way you choose to present your homework.

It will be due on the first Monday back on the holidays. Feel free to comment on as many posts as you can on the holidays.

  1. Should homework be done on the holidays?

    Do you want your children having to do homework while they are on their holiday? NO? Well I think that children should be able to have a wonderful holiday without having to do homework.

    I think that children shouldn’t be getting homework for the holidays because if children get homework instead of having fun they won’t be having a great holiday.

    My second opinion is that if children get given homework they will mostly be doing homework instead of have a holiday because they get homework on holidays.

    My last opinion is that at school children are given work to do but on the holidays children should be having a rest from all the school work and should have a chance to have a wonderful holiday because some children get holiday homework but the whole reason for a holiday is to get some time off from school.

    In Conclusion: I think that children shouldn’t be given homework because holidays are for getting time off of school so you get given a two week holiday off of school.

  2. Should homework be done on the holidays?
    Do want you want your children having to do their homework? Well I think that homework should not be done on holidays because your children don’t get to go outside and be active, children should enjoy their holidays instead of doing homework.
    I think that homework shouldn’t be done on the holidays because children would think that their still at school doing work instead of having an, awesome relaxing holiday without doing school work and have some fun outside.
    I strongly believe that children shouldn’t have to waste their time learning on holidays when you learn on a school days, why should your children have to miss out on other things that their family do.
    My last opinion is wouldn’t you like to have holidays without having to homework! Why do you think you have holidays? It is so you get to take some time of school and not just having to sit on your computer or writing homework out on a piece of paper.
    Conclusion: I think that you should do better things then just having homework to be finished! You should really make your children feel glad that they actually get holidays and they should enjoy their holidays.

  3. Do you want your kids to have home and not enjoy their holiday?
    Kids should not have homework on the holiday or then it won’t be called the holiday if you have homework the holiday is to talk a brace for do school work.
    My first resin is if homework is done on the holiday kid don’t get out and have funny being active healthy but instead they are stuck inside do home for hours and being board and unhealthy
    My second resin is I think that kid should not have to do homework because kid might feel like they are still at school and won’t be happy and relax but instead they are frustrated doing homework and your suppose to be frustrated at school not on the holidays
    My final resin is wan kids are ready for the holidays and just told they have homework kids might feel sad and frantically that they have home work and feel frantically that all there holidays are crushed so kid should finish the term with a smile not with a sad face.
    Conclusion: so kid should not have homework on the holidays because they feel so sad and frantically, so having homework is a terrible idea because holidays is to have a brace form doing work and to enjoy it.

  5. How would you feel if you saw all your childrens friends playing and enjoying quality time with their family while your child stays at home doing lousy homework?
    First of all, where’s the family is homework? NO WHERE. You can’t enjoy the precious, valueable time with your family if you have stacks of homework to do. You never know when diaster could strike! That time you have with your family should be used as much as you can. For all you know, this could be your very last days….

    What if your an A+ student who is doing well in school and is infact acing the grades. There’s no point for homework! You don’t need the pressure and stress from all this useless homework. Honestly, they’re doing so great and fabulous. Why would you even bother trying to fill their brains up with knowledge they already know. It’s just pathetic seriously. Why try to teach them something they already know? That’s like trying to tell Einstein how to read. HE ALREADY KNOWS HOW TO.

    P r e s s u r e. SO MUCH PRESSURE ON THE ONE SMALL CHILD. They can’t take all of the work on their own. They already have school days to learn about stuff. Why use their own time to learn about stuff that they are already learning school? What if they need help, from a teacher? WHERE is the teacher to guide them through the step procedure? What if the teacher’s explanation wasn’t good enough and they need a better understanding?

    Overall, wasting your childrens quality time, filling a childs head with knowledge they already know and pressuring a child is useless! That’s why I think children should NOT do homework on the holidays.

  6. Should home work be done on holidays?

    do you want your children to be doing homework? I think homework should not be aloud because you might be going to the most excitingest holiday that they’ve been to and everyone else gets to do fun things and you miss out because you have to do your homework.

    Secondly, your kids dont get to play or hang out with there friends because you have to do homework and wouldnt you like a relazing holiday with your family and not feeling like your still at school.

    thirdly, If you do home work than whats the point of having a holiday if you still have to do homework? when you could be having a deal of a life time ike going to a water park, going to different countrys, going on camps, visiting family, going to zoos or aquariums you would rather than
    being stuck at home.

    Conclusion, so do you want to have a deal of a life time and do all those fun things or sit there writing on a peice of paper almost falling asleep?

    and if you want a deal of a life time this holidays ask me.

  7. Now, I have to do my homework and I regret helping Loki.
    You’re on your own Loki, I’m talking my homework back.

  8. I believe there should be no homework as it disgusts me in time wasting boringness.

    Firstly, there should be no homework because it doesn’t really help with learning. Think about it, I have been doing persuasive pieces for 3 years, and I know what to do when it comes to persuasive pieces of writing, so I don’t think it helps with learning at all.

    Secondly, holidays are meant to be away from school to give us a little break from school, instead of giving us more education time on our break, and making us worry more about that then having fun, so we’re meant to be away from school, instead of holidays.

    Finally, holidays is a family time, so you can see relatives, and family, like how I saw my dad for 8 days all up, and I saw my brothers and sisters that time, but the only thing I mainly had on my mind was homework! So just give us time to have fun with our family.

    Those are my important reasons, suggesting family and fun without education on our minds.

  9. Do i think homework should be done on the holidays?
    I dont think homework should be done on the holidays because that is not what holidays are for. Holidays are ment to be about having a break from school and spending time with your family and having fun and homework is not fun. Homework should be done after school on school days not on holidays.Most kids dont enjoy homework so it will make your holidays not fun.It would be unfair for the children if they have to do homework on the holidays because instead of being outside playing they will be inside writing.
    I think homework should not be done on holidays.

  10. I believe that homework on the holidays would be disgraceful because what if your family is having fun outside and you are just inside stuck doing lousy homework.
    Firstly Holidays are meant for having a break from school and having a great time at home if you just got homework on the holidays then it would ruin the smiles off peoples faces and make it up side down.
    Secondly Homework is boring its just doing the same thing that you had just done! If i had to do homework on the holidays then it would ruin all the fun that I always spend at my house.
    Thirdly Homework doesn’t help with learning it’s just using the same knowledge that you had just used before at school which doesn’t help with education learning children so I think that we shouldn’t have homework and just spend nice holidays with our families.
    Conclusion Homework should NOT be done on the holidays because holidays are meant for having a break from school, homework is just using the same knowledge that you had just used which doesn’t help and homework doesn’t help with education because you just using the same things over again.

  11. I believe that homework should’t be aloud to do over the holidays because the holidays are meet to spend time with your family and not doing homework.
    Firstly Homework is not fun because when you are doing something cool you have to stay home and do it and not doing homework on the holidays takes the pressure off from school.
    Secondly Homework is so boring because you do the same things all the time at school don’t need to do it over the school holidays as well.
    Conclusion is that homework should only be for after school and not during the school holidays when we are meant to be having fun and a break from school pressures.
