An interactive financial education programme that brings money to life for 11-14 year olds whilst setting positive money habits.
This independent learning course helps young people explore their relationship with money and the consequences of what we do with it. It can be introduced to children by parents or incorporated into teachers’ adapted curriculum.
Involving videos, games and quizzes, Online Money Twist shows young people how we earn, save, spend and budget.
Session 1 – Discovering what motivates people to spend money, the impact that advertising, peer and media pressure, and shopping deals can have and the costs and benefits of different products.
Session 2 – Learning how to differentiate our needs and wants and budget, the benefits of saving and the National Minimum Wage.
Pupils watch MyBnk videos and follow guidance in order to complete independent activities.
These sessions are designed around the framework of: Best Deal, Best Feel and Best 4U and involves maths, critical thinking and reasoning.
Online Money Twist complements our Key Stage 3 classroom programme, a series of sessions delivered in school by MyBnk trainers.
