Budgeting for our Future Lives
Last week, Doves and Bullfinches were visited by volunteers from CAP (Christians Against Poverty) where we learned about the value of budgeting and saving money.
When they arrived in our classroom, we were assigned a different fictional character. Each character had a different lifestyle and different ways of saving and earning money.
In groups, we had to figure out ways children and adults make money. We also talked about the different things adults need to spend money on when it comes to life and how we manage staying out of debt.
This week, we started our first topic which is called the Game of Life. In this topic we are looking at managing money, writing out a budget and reasons to save money.
On Wednesday, both our classes had to write their final budgets for their in-game month, however before that they had to face a challenge where they had to spend money they didn’t expect to spend. This allowed them to realise how important saving money really is.
