  • Although it is now too late, the EU Referendum was an Advisory Referendum so the Government are not bound by law to abide by the winning vote.

    • Hi MadameRosbif,
      Thank you so much for letting us know about this one. I'll get this updated right away!

    • Hi there,
      Thanks for letting us know about this ambiguity. We have updated the PowerPoint so that it is clear the government does not necessarily have to abide by the people's decision.

      I hope you find it useful!

  • Used this PowerPoint with my Year 6 class. They really enjoyed learning about the EU and the Referendum. It sparked lots of discussion and we also held our own class vote which they loved! Very good resource - thank you Twinkl.

  • Hi there,
    On slide 11 it says that we'd save up to £118 billion each year in EU membership fees. Is this correct? Loved the powerpoint though - it started a great discussion.

    • Hi benjaminsell351,
      Thank you so much for letting us know about this one. I'll get this corrected right away!

    • Hi there,
      Thanks for letting us know about this. There are a lot of conflicting figures from various sources given for the amount the UK pays in EU membership fees, but the £118bn does seem to be a more spurious claim. We have updated it to the figures given by the official campaign (15.7bn) and we hope this clears up some debate!

    • Hi ShaminAkhtar,
      Thanks for commenting. I have asked our resource team if we can remove Nigel Farage from this PowerPoint for you.

      Please let me know if I can help you further.

      Have a lovely evening! :)

    • Thank you so much for changing the resource. I really appreciate it!

  • Excellent resource. Just used it with my year 6 class. It was clear and to the point. Please use someone else rather than Nigel Farage as an example of Brexit! Slide 3 says we voted to join in 1973, slide 8 1975. This needs correcting as all the children noticed!

    • Hi there,
      The UK initially decided to join the EU (which was then known as the European Economic Community) in 1973, but there was a referendum held in 1975 where the UK voters decided to remain within in it. I hope this clears up some confusion!

This clear, easy-to-follow presentation will give children a simple introduction to the upcoming EU Referendum. It will guide them through the pros and cons of the United Kingdom staying within the European Union.
