Spring 2- Money, Money, Money
This half term we will be learning all about money. We will learn about taxes, and how people deal with budgeting, debt, loans and interest. We will think about the careers we would like as we grow up and what skills we will need to do these jobs. We will also take part in a mini enterprise where you will work in your kagan groups to run a small business in order to make a profit.
If you have any foreign currency at home you could bring it to school so we can record on our world map the different currencies around the world.
Use this blog and your research logs to record learning linked to our new project. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Ø What different currencies are there around the world?
Ø What does a bank do and why do we keep our money there?
Ø Make a list of different things you would save up for. How much would you need to save?
Ø Find out what money was like in the past.
Ø Practise your maths skills when out shopping. Try to keep a total of how much you/your family is spending.
Ø Find out about different jobs and careers. What skills are needed? You could even interview your family about the skills they need for their jobs.
Ø Write a list of the advantages and disadvantages of having a lot of money.
