    Hi everyone,

    Searching for something to do with your students and/or children whilst at home? Why not check out our free, interactive resources on tax education. Designed by tax, finance and education experts, Tax Facts and Junior Tax Facts is HMRC’s tax education programme for young people.

    The packs contains links to animations on YouTube and suggested lessons plans which can be customised to meet individual teaching styles and needs. Lessons have been developed for both primary and secondary school aged children, are available in Welsh and cover the following key themes;

    Junior Tax Facts (ages 8-11):
    • recognising the rights and responsibilities of citizens
    • understanding how money plays an important part in people’s lives
    • appreciating that resources can be allocated in different ways and that these choices affect individuals, families, communities and our country.
    Tax Facts (ages 14-17):
    1. About HMRC — provides a general overview of what HMRC does, how taxes are collected and how the money is used
    2. Starting Your First Job — a young person’s guide to the tax implications of starting your first job — whether it’s a part-time job, a Saturday job or holiday work
    3. Working For Yourself — a simple introduction to the tax implications of starting a small business and becoming self-employed
    4. The Hidden Economy — an explanation of the hidden economy, what it is, its impact on society and how HMRC is tackling the problem

    Thank you for posting. I don't think we teach children enough about this, especially at KS2.
