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

Sessions cover:

  • Assemblies: Savvy Saving and everyday earning.
  • Lower KS2 workshops: History and value of money, earning money and wages, shopping choices, needs vs. wants, self-reflection, saving and goals.
  • Upper KS2 workshops: Money habits and mind-sets, resisting temptation, delaying gratification, budgeting, prioritising, banking, forms of payment.

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. Multiple workshops can be run simultaneously to allow several classes to take part at once.

This programme is part of the Money Advice Service’s What Works Fund – examining the effectiveness of financial education interventions.
