An online independent learning programme that teaches 7-11 year olds the basics of money whilst setting positive money habits.
These financial education resources are designed for direct use by children, with actionable ‘tell/ask/show your parent’ activities to prompt important conversations throughout the home. They can be introduced via families or a teachers’ adapted curriculum.
Three interactive sessions of videos, games and quizzes see children gain budgeting skills and develop an understanding of delayed gratification by creating saving goals.
- Needs and Wants: Where money comes from, and understanding common needs and wants found in the home.
- How to Budget: Understanding the importance of budgeting, and creating a budget for bedroom decoration.
- Saving and Delayed Gratification: Exploring the concept of delayed gratification and creating personal saving goals.
The programme involves maths, art, drama and literacy skills. Children can choose a task that compliments their learning style, through age and ability, with our ‘Make it, Say it, or Write it’ options in each session.
