Mrs Glossia told us that we should think about the words we use, especially when we’re writing excellent essays.

There are so many hundreds and thousands of words to choose from, we need to make sure the ones we pick are REALLY and TRULY the best words ever.

Mrs Glossia uses the word HOMEWORK all the time so I’ve decided to think about that.

It’s a compound word because it’s made up of two words: HOME and WORK.
SCHOOLWORK is another compound word.

I think that some compound words have to belong together, like SCHOOL and WORK.

But some shouldn’t belong together: like HOME and WORK.

These don’t belong together because HOME is home and WORK is work.

Mum’s always telling Dad it’s important to get a HOME/WORK balance so I’m preparing a petition for Mrs Glossia to end homework FOREVER.

Melly Fanshawe has signed it and so has Ruby Frost. (Paul Picklebottom said he’d only sign a petition about making chocolate compulsory in school lunches.)

Will you sign my petition too?

Yours in hope of no more homework,
Harriet Bright
