Money Sense with Nat West Bank
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. Earlier in the year we were joined by volunteers from NatWest to run workshops with many of the classes.
Years One and Two learned about how we use money, how it can be spent, saved or donated. They also explored the difference between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’.
Years Three and Four worked in groups to plan and present a fully costed, reasonably priced birthday party, which helped them learn about budgeting.
Years Five and Six became detectives to solve a crime of fraud as part of their workshop to understand the dangers of identity theft and fraud.
The children received certificates 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.
