Our Year 5 students recently enjoyed an activity-packed Financial Workshop, run by Mrs Haynes @naomihaynesfinancialplanning, a parent and former student. Throughout the morning, students learned about managing and growing their own pot of money, along with budgeting, compound interest, profit, risk and loss. It was a fun event that gave everyone a good understanding of how to handle money.

‘I really enjoyed the Financial Workshop,’ said Katy (L5 A). It showed me how dealing with money can be difficult, but if you work hard you can earn a good income. I also loved the games.’

Vrinda (5 Aesc) agreed. ‘I found out how to avoid risks and about spending money carefully. The Financial Workshop taught me a lot about money.’

‘I learned how to manage and understand money. The Financial Workshop was very helpful for our futures.’ Ivy (5 Aesc) expressed.
