Making Sense of Money
Jameah Girls Academy 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 were joined in 2018/2019 by volunteers from NatWest who ran MoneySense workshops with all classes in Years 3 to 6.
Our Year 3/4 class learned about how we use money, how it can be spent, saved or donated. They also explored the difference between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’.
Year 5 and Year 6 became detectives for the day to solve a crime of fraud as part of their workshop. This helped them to understand the dangers of identity theft and fraud.
The children were very excited about receiving certificates for their excellent work and we are very grateful to the volunteers from NatWest who joined us. They all enjoyed a great interactive workshop with our fantastic pupils.
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.
