  • Hi,There seems a typo in slide-7. Theresa May campaigned for Britain to REMAIN in the EU rather than LEAVE. So please update this.

  • Thank you for this. Some children are very interested in following the news, but to be honest, a lot of the reports have been slightly hysterical and are spreading fear through highly imaginative speculation. This gives information at an appropriate level without presenting the unknown future as fact! Great to have a bit of sanity thrown into the mix, especially as some children may be very unsettled by the various foolish behaviours that have taken place since the vote.

  • Amazing to see this - children will be better informed than most of the adults in the UK!

  • I like the first few pages and am going to use them for my Europe day ( combined with a French taster for Y2 children as part of transition- they have French lessons in KS2).
    I am disappointed that the slide show states that the majority of UK voted to leave EU. In fact because of our first past the post system, it is only true to say that more people voted to leave than to stay. Here is the maths:
    72% turnout of registered voters.
    of those 37.6% voted to leave - so 4.6% more than a third of voters.
    of registered voters 34.1% voted to stay- so about a third, slightly over.
    of registered voters 28.something% didnt vote or spoilt their papers- so say 4% less than a third.

    It would be fairer to say that just over a third voted to leave and that this was enough to declare a leave decision. This undeclared nearly a third who didn't vote in a for or against decision is significant. I think we are not educating our children well about politics if we pretend that those 28% of non-voters do not exist. Choosing to use the for or against statistics only, gives the impression that more people agreed to leave. A democracy needs people to be engaged, not ignored.

    • Hi Lisebb,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you. We have tried to make clear that of those eligible to vote, 72.2% voted. We have not added further complexity to this, but the resource is editable should you wish to do so. I hope you have a lovely day :)

  • I am glad that this resource can be changed as the deflation of the £ changed by the end of the first day rising again and has grown in strength since. Children are not really aware of interest rates and how the world market can change overnight. A more balanced view should be given so as not to worry them about their futures.

    • Hi JAHumphreys,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you. This PowerPoint is designed to be very factual about the events on Friday. The final two bullet points on slide 9 aim to provide a reassuring tone and explain that the Bank of England has pledged to take measures to stabilise the economy. This PowerPoint is also editable should you wish to amend it for your class. I hope this helps :)

  • My class were in London on 24th June for a visit to, amongst other places, the Houses of Parliament. What a day to be in the Capital! We shall be using this Powerpoint as a Guided Reading resource and for display. How wonderful to know you are responding to very current affairs. Thank you

      You're very welcome!

  • A good follow up from last week - stops the children worrying. Might be good to have a labelled map that could be used to inform the children which areas voted which way - and another for a resource that they could name the areas and colour appropriately - could then discuss reasons for the majority vote in their specific area. Some questions to answer after the PP would be good too. However, I will be using it tomorrow to settle the class. Thank you.
