I think we should have more hours of school

At school
School starts again for everyone this week after the Christmas holidays.

But Alisha thinks the school day should be longer:

"In my school we are only getting six hours of education.

But I feel that we should be getting more in primary school.

Most pupils don't like school and neither do I - but I think that school is important, especially us young primary students. As our minds are just getting into action.

Ditch the breaks!

I also think that we get too much playtime (we have three breaks!).

We only need two breaks - a lunch break and morning break (but I think morning breaks are useless.)

I also think that we spend too much time writing than learning. Half the time in my school we have aching hands because our teacher is making us write a lot.

Eight hour days?

To be honest I think that we should be getting at least eight hours of learning and one hour of break.

But then in high school we should only get five and a half hours of learning and two hours of break as the work gets harder.

This is just my opinion. What do you think? More primary hours and less secondary hours?"
