    This is good in terms of the teaching and learning activities but badly out of date. Anyone remember the days when George Osbourne held up his red case outside No 11? However, with some updating of figures and images, it provided a very thought-provoking afternoon. My Y9 class loved it. We just did the first two lessons which took 2 hrs 30 minutes, with some additional material I added on student loans vs graduate tax.

    Have used this very successfully with small groups of students. It is a really useful way to open up discussions about taxes, starting a job or other things that my Year 11 students have asked me about 'real life'.
