A highly interactive financial education programme building young people’s knowledge around basic finance and helping them engage with money.
Money Twist involves writing, presenting, drawing, maths and problem-solving.
- Session 1: The functions of money, understanding their relationship with money and the impact that advertising, peer and media pressure, and shopping deals can have. Alongside comparing costs and benefits of a range of goods and services.
- Session 2: Exploring the cost of living, wages and income to learn budgeting skills, differentiating needs from wants and making financial decisions based on their circumstances.
- Session 3: Making good money decisions based on current and savings accounts, interest, flow of money, understanding bank statements, overdrafts and the future of money.
Money Twist engages pupils to discuss, present, problem-solve and apply maths. We use real life case studies, ‘escape room’ style games, and videos, enabling them to understand habits, motivations and how to manage their relationship with money.
Activities cater for a variety of learning styles, with extensions and ability variations. The content maps into the financial literacy parts of the Citizenship, Maths and PSHE curriculum. It is ideal for financial capability focus days, enterprise weeks, or can be built into a scheme of work over a number of weeks.
Multiple sessions can be run simultaneously to allow several classes to take part at once.
Money Twist has been evaluated and proven by The Money Advice Service’s Evidence Hub. This programme also won Children & Young People Now’s Financial Capability Award 2010!
