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.
We were joined by volunteers from NatWest to run workshops with Years 4 and 5 in March 2019. We have been holding MoneySense workshops for the past few years.
Classes learned about how we use money, how it can be spent, saved or donated. They also explored the difference between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’.
Others 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 the volunteers from 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.
