NatWest Money Sense Workshops
Mr O’Mahoney invited some NatWest bank volunteers into school this week to run their Money Sense Workshops, to help our children to make sense of money by focusing on real-life financial situations! The workshops were great and the goody bags were a real treat!
KS1 explored the difference between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’, ways in which families spend money and our choices around how to use money. They had great fun working out the things that their chosen pet would actually ‘need’ and what it might ‘want’!
KS2 enjoyed costing out a reasonably priced birthday party and presenting their findings to the rest of the class. They looked at ways to save and pay for different aspects of the party and considered ways to reduce costs.
