Tax and Jaffa Cakes!


This week, we have enjoyed learning all about why we pay tax! We had a visit from HMRC, who showed us why it is so important to pay tax and where our money goes. We were very surprised to learn about the history of Jaffa Cakes and how they caused so much controversy – cake or biscuit?

We also had the chance to take part in an activity and decide where our taxes should go. We had to choose between healthcare, education and the armed forces. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has a really tough job!
