The following website contains videos of famous authors setting you a 10-minute writing challenge. Choose one that you like the look of and away you go!

10 Minute Challenges


Write a balanced argument about the statements below. These can be completed in any order and one should be completed each day:

• Should girls be allowed to play football with boys?
• Should dogs be banned from parks?
• Should school uniform be compulsory?
• Should all children be entitled to pocket money?
• Should children be limited to one hour’s access to the internet per day?

You should plan the arguments for and against (you could use a list or a mind map) before you start writing. You may want to have a discussion with your family first.

Think about how you structure your arguments – look at the documents to help you (you may decide not to use these). There is an example about Homework being banned.
