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 have been joined this academic year by volunteers from NatWest to run workshops with Years Two, Four and Six.
Year Two learned about how we use money, how it can be spent, saved or donated. They also explored the difference between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’.
Year Four planned and organised a party within a set budget, understanding the value of money.
Year Six became detectives to solve a crime of fraud as part of their workshop to understand the dangers of identify theft and fraud.
The children were very excited about receiving a certificate and goody bag 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 branch.
