'Money'

 

 

££££££££££What’s going on this week? $$$$$$$$$$$

Here are a range of activities from First News focusing on 'money'.

 

A mother from Northumberland recently spent £100 on a second-hand vending machine to provide an opportunity for her children to learn about money after tiring of them arguing over snacks and other items during lockdown. Mother of four, Sarah Balsdon, was getting so fed up with her children's constant arguments she and her husband, Kyle, came up with the idea to provide them in a limited and controlled way, whilst helping the children learn how to manage money.

Main question:

How should we learn to manage our money?

Listen, think, share

  • Look at this week’s poster and talk about what we can see. What do we know about vending machines and how they work? Have we used one before? Talk through this week’s story. Explain that a mum of four bought a vending machine and filled it with treats and items to help her children learn about the cost of things and to manage their own money.
  • Do we think having a vending machine for snacks and treats is a good idea? Would we like to have one in our house?
  • What do we think about pocket money and have we ever received it? What age do you think children should start receiving pocket money (if at all)? Why?
  • If you think that children should receive pocket money, should it be for completing chores around the house, or just given?
  • Do you think it’s important for young people to learn to manage money? Can you think of any other ways that you can learn about money alongside pocket money?
  • Talk about what we know about money and then watch this week’s useful video (found overleaf). Are we surprised by any of the responses?
  • Read through the information found on the assembly resource about pocket money. Do you think you need to know more about how to manage money, particularly in current times?

 

Reflection

As we get older, we will learn to manage money. Becoming a responsible adult means knowing how to take control of our finances, balancing the money coming in, with the money we spend.

If your interested in Science which many of you are than here is a  good lesson on solids, liquids and gases :

Represent the particles in solids, liquids and gases

In this lesson, we will learn about particles! We are going to learn how the particles in each state of matter behave and how this leads to the properties of solids, liquids and gases. For this lesson, you will need a piece of paper and a pencil.

 Now click this link:

Now one of our most popular class topics this year was World War 2. I have attached below the first of 3 lessons on World War 1 which I am sure many of you will also find fascinating. If you remember we all visited a World War 1  exhibition at the Imperial War Museum in January.

What caused the First World War to break out?

In today's lesson, we will be learning about the events leading up to the First World War. This will involve understanding the unification of Germany in the nineteenth century, and taking a look at the MAIN factors which set the conditions for the great war: militarism, imperialism, alliances and nationalism.

What is the Theory of Evolution?

Meanwhile... how about some more SCIENCE in this first lesson we look at Darwin’s observations from his trip on the HMS Beagle. We will then put all his observations together to see how Darwin came up with his theory. His theory is called evolution. We will apply this new knowledge to two other examples of evolution, mice and giraffes. To begin click below and we will start with a quiz.
