Content

A series of highly interactive financial education workshops, designed to help set positive money habits and mind-sets from an early age.

Expert-led sessions are complemented by assemblies, teacher resources and homework challenges. MyBnk’s unique and engaging activities teach young people to become informed consumers, savvy savers, and mindful spenders by making finance fun.

Sessions cover:

  • Assembly: Introduction to different money mindsets relating to everyday spending and saving.
  • My Money: Awareness of money habits, mind-sets and delayed gratification. Methods of resisting temptation using different strategies.
  • My Choices: Prioritising needs and wants, budgeting, and costs of living. Thinking about how to manage your money.
  • My Future: The benefits of saving, calculating interest as a reward or charge, and understanding risk. Thinking about personal future endeavours.

Money Twist involves writing, presenting, drawing, maths and problem- solving. We use MyBnk Manga comics, interactive resources and videos, engaging students to remember new knowledge and form their own money opinions. Underpinning behaviour change is the development of executive functions. Activities cater for a variety of learning styles, with extensions and ability variations.

Money Twist is based on Ofsted financial education guidelines and references OECD PISA and MAS frameworks.
