https://www.purplemash.com/#app/pup/uniformdebate2

This is always a hot topic of debate and you will need to put your point of view across to persude people reading your work that you are right.

Remember you will need to show it from both sides of the arguments (For and Against) and present these as facts but using your ideas to say if those are good or bad reasons (depending on your point of view)

You can use some persuasive language features to help you too, such as:-

•  Rhetorical questions
• Superlatives/comparative words (the best, even better if..., )

Remember to use fronted adverbials to begin sentences to "signpost" in your writing if your sentences are for the point(Similarly, Also, furthermore) or against the point you have just written (However, On the other hand).

Please use the "Should homework be banned" example below of how to write your points.

Please remember to save and submit your work so we can read through it and offer you some feedback.

Geography - Where Does our Water Come From?

Take a look at the presentation on UK rivers (Same document as a PDF and Power point - you choose which one to view), then look at the different rivers around the UK.

Your task is to work out where the area of land in which the source is located, location of its mouth and even some places nearby where it goes by (villages, towns and cities)

For example ..

Spey : Northeast Scotland. Source = Loch Spey -  it is the fastest-flowing river in UK and gives water to the most whiskey factories. Its mouth is in the Forth of Moray
