Making Sense of Money
We are working towards becoming a MoneySense Accredited School as part of our commitment to teaching our pupils how to use money safely and responsibly. Mr Merrrifield joined us earlier this term from NatWest to run workshops with all 3 classes.
Green Class learned about how we use money, how it can be spent, saved or donated. They also explored the difference between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’. Yellow Class learned about budgeting through planning a party. Blue Class became detectives to solve a crime of fraud as part of their workshop to understand the dangers of identity theft and fraud.
The children were very excited about receiving a certificate and key ring and we are very grateful to Mr Merrifield and to NatWest.
The MoneySense website mymoneysense.com has a Parents section where you can download activities to do at home. Your children can also explore a Virtual Bank to get used to the services in a real bank branch.
