MoneySense workshops develop Welbourne pupils’ financial skillsBy Margaret Carrington In Announcements, News, Newsletter, Parents, Pupils, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5
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 will be joined by volunteers from NatWest to run workshops in Years 1-5 in March 2020.
Last year we also held MoneySense workshops. Children learned about how we use money, how it can be spent, saved or donated. Younger children explored the difference between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’. Older children became detectives to solve a crime of fraud as part of their workshop to understand the dangers of identity theft and fraud. At the end of the workshops they received key rings and a certificate.
The MoneySense website mymoneysense.com has a parents’ section, where you can download activities to do at home to teach your child about money. Your children can also explore a Virtual Bank to get used to the services in a real bank branch.
