Year 4 took part in a 'Money Sense' session. They had to plan the best birthday party they could by sticking to a set budget.
The children were really engaged and came away with some useful money skills – they said that they hadn’t realised the costs involved in having a party!
The session really helped them to understand the idea of a budget and how you couldn’t just choose everything you wanted if you had to stick to a certain amount per person.
A group of children have since decided that they would like to become party planners as they enjoyed trying to create the best party within a certain budget.
