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. On the 17th October, we were joined by volunteers from NatWest to run workshops with Finsbury Class, Year 2.
The children learned about the concepts of enterprise, buying, selling and budgeting in a series of group activities involving setting up a smoothie shop. They also explored the difference between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’.
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.
