The EU Referendum – What’s it all about?

On Thursday, you will not be in school because of the EU Referendum.


On Wednesday morning, we will be learning all about this and looking at reasons why some people believe we should leave the EU (European Union) and others believe we should stay. We will hold our own debate and finish off with a class vote. Use the links below to help prepare for the lesson by reading a little bit about it!
