Thank you to Amy MacLinton for speaking to P2A about her job in the Bank of Scotland.
We enjoyed hearing the story about Billy trying hard to save up his money and all the pitfalls he had along the way. In the end he persevered and saved up enough money for his crocodile. This made us think about money in our own lives and how difficult it can be to save for things we want to buy- we have to have a lot of patience.
It was great fun weighing the money on the scales and we surprised ourselves when we completed a worksheet about counting up Billy’s coins. We managed to get most of them correct! Our next step is to work out change and do take away sums with money and set up a little shop/bank in our classroom next term.
How will this help us with our money skills?
Thank you also for our Bank of Scotland goody bags with treats inside. This was another lovely surprise.
