## P6 homework (Miss Prior) Due 23.03.16

Article from Newsround

Secondary schools in England could have longer school days due to new government plans.

George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, is responsible for setting out how the government plans to spend its money each year in his budget.

In a speech yesterday he announced that he wants to allow head teachers of English secondary schools to scrap traditional “home time” and instead decide themselves what time the school day will end.

This means that school days could be longer.

The Chancellor says his plans will mean “every child gets the best start in life”. But some teachers say it’s more complicated, and that they’re already offering after school activities.

You are going to form an argument for and against having longer school days in Scotland.

Please write:

• 1 paragraph on why it would be beneficial to have a longer school day.
• 1 paragraph against having a longer school day.
• Then as a conclusion write your own opinion on the subject.
• Please write this as a personal piece in first person.
