"Everyone matters and every day counts"

"An outstanding school" (Ofsted July 2015)

Summer 2 Week 3

The Picture News this week links in with our maths learning which is all about money and poses the key question ‘How should we learn to manage our money?’

Recently, there was an article in the news about a mother who provided her children with the opportunity to purchase sweets from a vending machine. However, there was a catch! The children had to do specific jobs around the house and save up their pocket money to buy an item from the vending machine. The mum thought it was an excellent way to help her children understand the value of money. What do you think? Do you get pocket money? How do you spend your pocket money? These are some of the discussions you could have with you family at home. There are also additional assembly resources, found below, that you may want to complete.
