As part of our “Pirates of the Curry Bean” Enterprise, P7 have been focusing on methods of payment and budgeting within their numeracy lessons. We have been using the RBS “My Money Sense” resource. It has useful sections for parents and young people: https://rbs.mymoneysense.com/home/
They worked in pairs to investigate the advantages and disadvantages of different methods of payment. They also had a go at making financial decisions for a family of 4 for one month, deciding whether to pay for different goods and services with a credit or debit card – it proved to be a challenge, and some people maxed out their credit cards!
