Learning about money

Year 4 have been learning about money in our PSHE lesson.

We started with thinking about where it comes from, where we keep it, how it feels to get money and best of all, where to spend it!

We also looked at Pride Place, a lovely street, with lots of interesting characters. These characters are going to help us learn more about money over the next few weeks.

We started by helping Bert with his shopping. He had £35 to spend from his pension but he had to buy food for three days, as well as getting top ups for the phone and the electricity…not to mention his wife Ada wanted a “treat”. The class managed all the shopping and treat for less than £35! That’s
Excellent as shopping on a budget is not easy. The class made very sensible decisions, making a choice of bread, so they could make sandwiches as well as having beans on toast. Very wise.

They also made sure the essentials of the top ups went into the basket first so they could see how much was left over for the food. Mrs Sabir was very impressed with the class. Wells done.
