Loads of you have been getting in touch today

:00:10.:00:14.

We've been asking if primary schools should be doing any at all.

:00:15.:00:19.

One half times by one quarter equals one eighth.

:00:20.:00:31.

Homework - it's given out in most of the primary

:00:32.:00:39.

schools in the UK but, for more than 100 years,

:00:40.:00:42.

experts have been trying to decide whether or not it's a good thing

:00:43.:00:45.

Some people think homework puts too much pressure on kids.

:00:46.:00:50.

They say research suggests homework in primary school isn't

:00:51.:00:53.

And, because of this, some teachers and heads want it

:00:54.:00:58.

But others say homework is an important part of you learning

:00:59.:01:03.

how to work on your own and gives you the chance to practise what

:01:04.:01:06.

you've learnt in the classroom - like times tables, reading,

:01:07.:01:09.

At this school, the students are given written and number

:01:10.:01:14.

Homework is a good thing because it might help children

:01:15.:01:18.

who are struggling or just need a bit more information to help them,

:01:19.:01:24.

and I think all children should be doing it.

:01:25.:01:26.

I don't like homework because I feel, after

:01:27.:01:28.

I think it's beneficial because you are re-capping

:01:29.:01:32.

and you are revising what you've just done.

:01:33.:01:35.

Sometimes, I get really stressed when I don't have it all done.

:01:36.:01:40.

The government says head teachers can make their own decision

:01:41.:01:44.

about whether or not to set homework.

:01:45.:01:47.

So why does this school, like many others, think it's important?

:01:48.:01:51.

Basically, we give them homework because we want them to reaffirm

:01:52.:01:56.

what they've learnt that week and enjoy what they are learning.

:01:57.:02:00.

And we also want them to be ready for when they go

:02:01.:02:02.

They will be getting homework on a regular basis

:02:03.:02:06.

I would like homework to be a bit more varied and I'd like there to be

:02:07.:02:12.

If homework was taken away, I'd feel glad but also sad

:02:13.:02:20.

because homework helps me know what I'm doing and makes

:02:21.:02:24.

But I would be happy as well because I would have more time to spend with

:02:25.:02:33.

my family. Over at Newsround online

:02:34.:02:35.

today, you've been busy Amelie, who's eight,

:02:36.:02:37.

thinks homework is good as it helps you to remember what you've

:02:38.:02:40.

learnt in class. But nine-year-old Edward says,

:02:41.:02:42.

sometimes, when you're doing your homework,

:02:43.:02:44.

you can get very stressed. But Callum loves homework,

:02:45.:02:46.

saying he likes learning and, if you use a laptop or read,

:02:47.:02:52.

then you are practising Thanks for getting in touch with us,
